log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.

  • 1.  log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.

    Hello,

     

    I have an appliance system which has an integrated Brocade switch. Working commands has the following error after command output:

     

    > firmwareshow
    Appl     Primary/Secondary Versions
    ------------------------------------------
    FOS      v7.2.0b1
             v7.2.0b1
    log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.
    Failed to open CLI history file.
    >

     

     

    But most of the commands fail with IO error as follows.

     

    > date
    rbash: /fabos/link_bin/date: Input/output error
    log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.
    Failed to open CLI history file.


    > alishow
    exec error: 5, Input/output error
    log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.
    Failed to open CLI history file.

    > zoneshow
    exec error: 5, Input/output error
    log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.
    Failed to open CLI history file.

    > errdump
    rbash: /fabos/link_bin/errdump: Input/output error
    log init failed.Unable to retrieve CLI history.
    Failed to open CLI history file.

    I found a a thread at http://community.brocade.com/t5/Fibre-Channel-SAN/Brocade-300-boot-error-Input-output-error/td-p/27022 and not sure if this is my case.

     

    Do you have any idea about this kind of issue ?

     

     

    Regards,

    Niyazi

    I'd try hareboot. But there's a chance that CP will fail to boot at all. Therefore, before trying hareboot, I'd call support and ask them to bring a spare onsite.

    Thank you Alexey. It was also the first thing came to my mind, but it makes me too nervous since both switches (redundant) are in the same state. I will wait for the vendors reply to my ticket.

    That's interesting. Since you say that you have two switches in the same state, I don't believe that this is a hardware error. Could you please tell:
    What kind of switches have failed this way?
    What Fabric OS version are they running?

    Hi,

     

     

    switchType:     117.1 (Brocade 6547 Embedded Switch)

    FOS                  v7.2.0b1

     

    I suspect filesystem might be full.

    Upon reply from the vendor to my ticket, hard reset fixed my problem. They claim this is a known issue.:smileyfrustrated:
