    We have a problem using San Health on 4G switches Brocade 4024 (HP A7533A) in HP blade on version Fabric OS V6.2.2.
    Latest San Health v4 do not let as run diagnostics on these switches. It reports bug in version 6.2.2  (SSH commands causes kernel panic and reboot ).
    Is there any workaround, to be able to generate San Health report?

    There is a known uncommon defect in FOS 6.2.2d specific to the 4024 that can cause an issue with the management server daemon when running certain CLI commands under specific scenarios.

    As SAN Health is designed to be non-intrusive and to avoid risk, we simply don’t allow it to run against that box on that firmware level.  We would recommend that you upgrade the firmware. Sorry, but this is the only way to get SAN Health to run against that switch. Please check with your support provider for more details on their recommendations for the best version of firmware to upgrade to.
