Currently at DCFM 10.3.2.
unable to access Mcdata switches. Discovery shows the switch has been discovered with a message "Switch has too many sessions"
This is likely in our instance to be related to TPC monitoring as there have been issues collecting the data
How can i clean up these sessions on the switch to enable DCFM access again

Testing follow, Stop and restart the DCFM, and try again.
Have you check the compatibility between DCFM 10.3.2 and the current loaded EOS ?

you mean to say IBM TPC monitoring, but TPC never creates this type of issue.It will shoe you the topology and if you have licenses for the same you can access the SW.

--->>>How can i clean up these sessions "on the switch".....
if you are able to manage the switch trough the CLI and GUI, the error is caused by DCFM and not from Switch side.
test follow workaround please, Start dcfm, remove this switch from discovery table, logout from DCFM.
Start DCFM now and try the Switch IP in the discovery.
i found a similary Defect which was detected in DCFM 10.3.0 caused when Zone will be moved from EOS based switches to DCX.
not sure is this is the same behavior.....

Have narrowed the problem down to the CIMON agents used to manage the EOS switches. when this service was stopped, DCFM discovered these switches again and can now launch element manager via DCFM
will try to understand why

spike, see a note below.
To complete the discovery process for switch performance functions, a CIMOM must be enabled for your switch.
Contact your switch vendor for information on how to enable the CIMOM or install the CIMOM proxy.
To gather switch performance data, follow this procedure:
