Hi Didi,

SAN Health is supported on all types of Brocade SAN gear. As to why you are getting this error, is not quite clear to me. But we can surely find out.

The error message seems to say that there is a loop device connected to this switch but being represented as a F port. Are there any weird devices connected to this switch, any VTL's, tape drives or lesser known storage devices.

Please post the o/p of




errdump -r

in a txt file and attach as response.
