Error duruing FOS upgrade

When upgrading a   Brocade 16Gb/16 SAN Switch for BladeSystem c-Class  from v7.4.1.c to v7.4.1.e

Error in retriving the chassis info.

fabsys device open: No such device or address

fabsys device open: No such device or address

fabsys device open: No such device or address

 

Is this related to a bad partition ?

I have seen this a lot lately especially on 16Gb Blade enclosure switches

HI Thomas ,

 

It seems to be an issue with the primary partition.
The best is to contact your OEM/TAC for try to recovery by executing a boot to the second partition and then to do a firmwaredownload to recover original partition.

Re: Error duruing FOS upgrade

Hi Thomas,

 

there is a few case for this recently. Suspect bad partition (failed firmwaredownload). Option would be firmwarecleaninstall (also a little risky) or as Jerome mention boot from the secondary partition. Are you able to share the bootlog (console) or a supportsave from one or two of these devices?  It should really go via OEM, but we can always take a peek on the data.
