Unable to activate Allow/Prohibit Matrix after a power failure and reboot of DCX Director

Hi,

 

After a power failure at our DC, our DCX directors (IBM 2499-816) were rebooted up OK. However, some of the port settings seem to have regressed to previous version, and we can not re-activate any matrix. We have ACTIVE=SAVE option in our setup.

 

Eg, after making a small change (unblockport 15 ) to the 'active configuration', we activate it and receive this message :

 

FMS_CFG_050(E) - (Configuration Activation) Failed - Reason(185, 0xB9, PDCM Asymmetric) PortAddr(0x15) Index(0xCF) - File content is invalid

Cannot set CUP configuration

 

Does anyone know a safe method to recover from this problem ? The same problem happen by using webtool directy or via BNA.

 

FOS is 7.4.0a and BNA is 12.4.1

 

Thank You

Kien,

 

-> FMS_CFG_050(E)

 

is this the fabric config name ?

 

if yes, can you try first to save/backup a config ? i.e.  FMS_CFG_Backup

 

on the port in question, I would suggest first to set in permanent disable and then turn back on permanant enable

 

keep in mind the operation is on the port disruptive.
