brocade switch hanges in fifth time of reboot/shutdown

Hi Brocade Community,

I have faced issue with Brocade 6505 switch.

I have doing switch shutdown test, in this test I have to shut down and up the brocade switch five times consecutively.

But at fifth time of reboot switch is not up properly and get hanged (continuous yellow light is illuminate on all ports ).

For up the switch I have to shut down (6th time) the switch again and this time it successfully on and working fine.

I have observed this issue many times in our testing.

Please suggest me any workaround/ suggestion.

FYI.

I have atteched log file of switch for your help.

 

Thankss & Regards,

Ankit Gupta

I'm not seeing an attachment.

To be honest, if you can reproduce the behaviour on multiple switches, I suggest you log a call with your support vendor.

Some storage devices have boot loop counters. Exceed that counter, and the device may believe that it is faulted.

 

As storage devices are meant to be up and available for extended periods of time, I don't think a shutdown/restart test is advisable.

I couldn't agree more with @richkell!
