DCFM Issue - MCData switch discovery

Currently at DCFM 10.4.5 enterprise

unable to discover Mcdata switches (M6140) and run at MEOS 9.6.2  . Discovery error window shows a message "the managed product has reached its limit of management session"

I have checked that we can managed these switches thru SSH, so actually the management session isn't full

i have read another problem at http://community.brocade.com/thread/4028?start=0&tstart=0 ,

should I take a look at CIMOM? (can anyone explain step by step),

and how can I restart DCFM service (Is it just close the DCFM main window?)

Thanks

Re: DCFM Issue - MCData switch discovery

have you tried to remove the McDATA from discovery -> Stop DCFM Server -> Start DCFM now -> Add McDATA in Discovery

Re: DCFM Issue - MCData switch discovery

Actually, this is the 1st time we want to add mcData switches to DFCM..

The current Pure MCData fabric (contains several MCData switches, M6140) at MEOS v9.6.2

I have tried installing another DCFM at my computer, then i tried to discovered it, but the same error message appear..

And I experienced to discovered another MCData fabric (contain 1 MCData fabric and 1 MCdata switces) then it can be discovered through DCFM (the MCDATA switch can be discovered, but the MCData director cant be discovered coz unreachable).

should I upgrade the MCData fabric to v9.9.2??

--->>> should I upgrade the MCData fabric to v9.9.2??

DCFM support 9.6.2 as well, i don't think upgrade solve that problem.

--->>> Currently at DCFM 10.4.5 enterprise

how many port have the current fabric ?

another problem can be caused by some security Features integrated in EOS.

as fair as i remember, EOS Based Directors - 6064 and 6140 - have a security features which can be enable / disable when user add a new switch in the Fabric to avoid any config mismatch.

I'll try to find some other info about this features and post here.

Re: DCFM Issue - MCData switch discovery

-->DCFM support 9.6.2 as well, i don't think upgrade solve that problem.

AFAIK, DCFM would support MCData at 9.6.2 if MCData switch is connected to FOS-based product.. I have read M-EOS release note v.9.9.2, it says that this version add new feature that MCData switch now can be discovered without need of FOS-based product.. Is it true? bcoz i dont know if anyone has successfully discovered MCData switch at v9.6.2 through DCFM

--> security

I will check the security feature at this fabric..
