DCX Virtual Switch ISL port "452" Does Not Exist

[ Edited ]

A customer has two Brocade DCXs (v7.1.0c).  Each DCX is carved into 7 virtual switches.

Each virtual switch of DCX1  has a physical ISL link directly to a virtual switch on DCX  2.

 

On DCX1 there is a  virtual switch port for an ISL with a port number  of 452.  There is no port listed

with switchshow or porterrshow labelled 452.  

 

The switchshow snippet displays as:

452 -1 452 ------ -- Online FC E-Port 10:00:00:05:33:c5:be:03 "DIR_SAN_SIG_02_OPEN_DISK" (downstream) 

 

(Notice the "-1", that's odd too.)

 

Again,  there is no listing of port "452" in switchshow or islshow.  The highest numbered physical port on the

DCX1 is located on the core blades which  ends at port number 447.

 

The DCX1  hardware is all fc8-48 line modules for total of 384 (0 to 383) ports.

The core blade number begins at 384-447.

 

So where is port 452 physically located on DCX1 ?
