blue-green box with a diagonal line on a switch

Within BNA, what does a blue-green box with a diagonal line on a switch mean?  I am aware of the Red - and Green + symbols.

Also is there a list of symbols and meaning available?  

Thank you.

In the SAN + IP User Manual there's a few different tables showing different icons & colours. The specific meaning depends on the context.

 

Where are you seeing that icon?

The icon was visible directly over the switch.  The vertical line was white.

I know such Icons, when the Switch is Unreachable i.e. the Switch was moved beetwen BNA in a different Fabric, or in the BNA you have wrong Credential username/password for the Switch in question.

 

can you please post a screen-shot ?

I've tried to post a picture, but it's not happening in "Rich Text". Is there a way to upload it?  I'm new to this forum. 

Thank you.

Antonio, I tried downloading a different browser, however I'm still not getting the Attachment/Browse option in my view. Is there an email address I could send to?

Unreachable Switch in BNA.jpg


As mentioned in my preview Post from 09-21-2015 06:48 PM, the Issue is related due a Unreachable Switch, for some reason.... wrong IP, wrong Credentila or whatever.

See screen below from Brocade Network Advisor SAN + IP User Manual #53-1003745-03

 

BNA Figure 573 Table 105.jpg

I assuming that you are not able to manage the Switch, in such case with a bit of "Caution" since this is a Core Switch, I would remove the Switch and/or try to discover again trough the BNA.

now you should be able to se the switch Correct Online in BNA.

 

Otherwise you you should open a Ticket with Brocade or you Reseller/OEM
