Hello Brocade Dudes,
DCFM 10.4.2 runnin on a linux box. This server is able to talk to several different fabrics. Some are directly attached (same subnet), others are remote with network address translation, some without.
Everything's fine for "same subnet" ones & "no NAT ones". Things are a nightmare for those with nat.
When trying to update a firmware, get a supportsave, ..., dcfm will fork (let's say we're just trying to get a supportsave) the following command, from the switch :
/fabos/cliexec/supportsave -n -u admin -p <password> -h <DCFM IP ADDRESS> -d /technicalsupport/Supportinfo-Thu-07-29-2010-12-25-38 /<switchname>-<switchIpAddress>-<switch_wwn> -l ftp
where <DCFM IP ADDRESS> is the IP address you choose in Server > Options > IP Configuration > Preferred Address.
This is fine for non natted network, this is bad for natted ones.
2 solutions may be possible :
I hope I am clear enough,
