ELP parameters are Port_Name, Switch_Name, Class F service parameters, R_A_TOV and E_D_TOV.One good test is to try a fabric merge analysis with Fabric Manager (you can download an evaluation version), it will tell you exactely what is wrong.

I have the same situation and the PID of the 2800 defaults to 0 where the PID of the bladecenter mod defaults to 1 (It can't be set to 0) BTW, in order to set the 2800 to PID1 you need to be at 2.6.2a (Or Around there)I can't find anything to tell me what this parameter is or what it does. Anyone know?

ttchuck,you are dealing with the managment server platform database that runs on the switch, it is another thing that either has to be on for all switches or off for all switches. Now I can't remeber if it part of 'configure' settings or if there are commands prefixed with 'msplat' that turn it on anf off, hopefully this will get you on the right track.
