log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.

Hello,

 

I have an appliance system which has an integrated Brocade switch. Working commands has the following error after command output:

 

> firmwareshow
Appl     Primary/Secondary Versions
------------------------------------------
FOS      v7.2.0b1
         v7.2.0b1
log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.
Failed to open CLI history file.
>

 

 

But most of the commands fail with IO error as follows.

 

> date
rbash: /fabos/link_bin/date: Input/output error
log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.
Failed to open CLI history file.


> alishow
exec error: 5, Input/output error
log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.
Failed to open CLI history file.
>

 

> zoneshow
exec error: 5, Input/output error
log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.
Failed to open CLI history file.
>

 

> errdump
rbash: /fabos/link_bin/errdump: Input/output error
log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.
Failed to open CLI history file.
>

 

I found a a thread at http://community.brocade.com/t5/Fibre-Channel-SAN/Brocade-300-boot-error-Input-output-error/td-p/27022 and not sure if this is my case.

 

Do you have any idea about this kind of issue ?

 

 

Regards,

Niyazi

I'd try hareboot. But there's a chance that CP will fail to boot at all. Therefore, before trying hareboot, I'd call support and ask them to bring a spare onsite.

Thank you Alexey. It was also the first thing came to my mind, but it makes me too nervous since both switches (redundant) are in the same state. I will wait for the vendors reply to my ticket.

That's interesting. Since you say that you have two switches in the same state, I don't believe that this is a hardware error. Could you please tell:
What kind of switches have failed this way?
What Fabric OS version are they running?

Hi,

 

 

switchType:     117.1 (Brocade 6547 Embedded Switch)

FOS                  v7.2.0b1

 

I suspect filesystem might be full.

Upon reply from the vendor to my ticket, hard reset fixed my problem. They claim this is a known issue.:smileyfrustrated:
