Look for any outstanding transacions on every switch in that fabric. (cfgtransshow --opentrans)


If that command reports a switch has an outstanding transaction which is abortable, login to that switch and issue "cfgtransabort" . You shoul dbe OK after that.


If that doesn't help you have to reboot that switch.
