One of 4 trunk ports is not working

  • 1.  One of 4 trunk ports is not working

    Posted 07-23-2013 11:12 AM


    I have two 32 ports Brocade switches. Port 0, one out of 4 trunk ports is not functioning. The following is the output. I switched the other cable, the same. Link lights on both side are on. It says "No License", but I am sure it is licensed 0-15

    Could anybody please help out? Thanks!

    Posted 07-23-2013 11:25 AM

    try first to clear the log "portlogclear" another option is to replace the SFP,

    what happened ?

    Posted 07-23-2013 11:55 AM

    I did both suggestions, no luck. On one switch, the port 0 led status is off, but speed light is on. on the other switch, the led status is on, the speed light is off.

    I aslo notcied portSpeed is different between these 2 switch on port0. It should be N4Gbps, since the other ports are all N4Gbps, how to change it to N4Gbps from 4Gpbs?

    portSpeed: N4Gbps
    portSpeed: 4Gbps

    any idear?

    Thanks!

    portSpeed: N4Gbps

    portSpeed: 4Gbps

    keep in mind, port setting in a trunk group must have same settings, the output show one port is set as Auto Negotiation the other is set as Fixed 4G

    set both port for short time as persistent disable "portcfgpersistentdisable" unplug the cable and try to adjust it first.

    then enable the port again with "portcfgpersistentenable"

    if this not work, disable the port again and do "portcfgdefault"

    if the error persist try to change the cable.

    We are making progress, as soon as I change the port to "auto", port0 on both switch seems "online" now. however, why port0 becomes "master" as well, port1 becomes "downstream master".

    how do i clean this up? what is downstream master, should I keep it?

    ->however, why port0 becomes "master" as well, port1 becomes "downstream master".

    this is correct, when a Trunk is formed.

    however show to me as some is not correct set in remain port 2 and 3.

    check accurately all Port config between a Trunk "portcfgshow" and if necessary take action to set it correct.

    post here please output from "trunkshow"

    0   0   idN2   OnlineE-Port  10:00:00:05:1e:35:21:d5 "SWITCHA" (Trunk master)

    port 0 is set as N2, show as you have here 2G SFP inserted, where port 1,2, and 3 hare fitted with 4G SFP. "N4"

    post please additional output from "sfpshow"

    Posted 07-23-2013 01:14 PM

    you are right. now, I used 2G SFP

    Now, if I change SFP to 4G on both side, then SWITCH B shows no_light. I tried different 4G SFP; SWITCH A shows "In_Sync". I tried different 4G SFP, the same.

    "portcfgshow" shows the same result from these 2 switches.

    Posted 07-23-2013 01:31 PM

    try again please with "sfpshow -f" I see only the vendor and Serial Number.

    the output show as truncated, usually you should see the Speed i.e. 400, 200,100 by 4G SFP

    200,100 by 2G SFP

    repeat again "portcfgpersistentdisable"

    "portcfgdefault" for Port 0, do "portstatsclear" and "portlogclear"

    check the port have same setting and Speed as other port in trunk group

    then enable the port again "portcfgpersistentenable"

    unplug the cable before execute the command, and plug again when the port is enable

    I tried all you said here, and the same, the following is the output of switchshow from two switches respectively:

    Area Port Media Speed State

    ==============================

      0   0   id    N4   No_Light

    Area Port Media Speed State

    ==============================

      0   0   id    AN   No_Sync

    If I use 2G SFP, both side appeared to be "online", which means the cable is fine, port should be fine as well, I think. If 4G SFP is not good, why I can retrieve  information by sfpshow from it?  I also tried different 4G SFP.


    #BrocadeFibreChannelNetworkingCommunity


  • 15.  Re: One of 4 trunk ports is not working

    Posted 07-23-2013 08:55 PM

    that is a good question.

    can you move please the Trunk to different Octet ? from switchshow port 12-15 are free.

    12  12   idN2   No_Light
    13  13   idN2   No_Light
    14  14   idN2   No_Light
    15  15   idN2   No_Light

    fit those port with 4G SFP, and before Plug the cable configure Port' with this command.

    portcfgpersistentdisable -->> Port_Number

    portcfgspeed --> fix 8G

    portcfgeport  --> Set Port Mode 2 E-Port only

    portcfglongdistance LE Set VC init 1

    portcfgqos --> Set on Off

    portcfgnpivport --> Set on Off.

    Trunking ( usually ) is by default enable, if no make the port trunking capable

    portcfgtrunkport --> Port_Number 1

    Set configured Port "portcfgpersistentenable"

    can you tell me the FOS Relase in use ?

    and finally stupid question, are both Switches trunking Licensed ?

    Good morning.

    I found the following:

    Current:    7.160 mAmps
    Voltage:     3324.7 mVolts
    RX Power:    0.5 uWatts
    TX Power:    0.0 uWatts

    There is your problem:. .5uW is euqals -33dBm

    see also mW to dBm conversion - RapidTables.com

    usually, the launch power is around -2 to -10 dBm or between 700uW and 100uW

    min Receive Power usually is dependend on the signal speed. where a lower speed requires less input power. but clearly higher than .5uW

    Also the laser current readings are quite strange since SWITCHA has a laser current but no TX signal, and Switch B has a TX Signal but nearly no laser current. This is nearly impossible.

    Switch B

    Current:     0.006 mAmps

    Voltage:     3313.4 mVolts

    RX Power:    369.5 uWatts

    TX Power:    347.1 uWatts


    Additionally the port 0 on switch A does not launch any signal (which is quite weird, cause the port 0 on Switch B seems to receive a pretty good signal) and it receives nearly 0 (~-33dBm)

    I know that there wer bugs and some an´abnormalities' on the SFP readings but this is really strange.

    Anyhow: for better readings, you may think about an upgrade to FOS 6.4 or higher . Then it will tell you a bit more in regards to the min and the max values of Temp, Current, power:

    low high      low high    

    Temperature:48 Centigrade -15 90 -10 85

    Current: 6.568 mAmps 2.000 8.500 2.000 8.500

    Voltage: 3318.4 mVolts 2800.0 3800.0 2970.0 3630.0

    RX Power: -32.2 dBm (0.6 uW) 0.0 uW 6550.0 uW 49.0 uW 1100.0 uW

    TX Power: -2.5 dBm (566.4 uW) 50.0 uW 800.0 uW 100.0 uW 700.0 uW

    sorry for the bad formatting .. still a rookie :-o

    But  my guess (IMHO) is still the SFP's and/or cable on Port 0's.

    I would do the following in order to check on the SFP's and cables: ( all ports same config, all 4 G speed)

    - Exchange the cables on Port 0 with Port 1 on both switches.  Does the error move to port 1?

    - If it does not, the cable is not your problem..

    - Flip the SFP on port 0 Switch A with the SFP in port 1 and reconnect everything. Did the error move ?

    - If you still see the problem on Port 0-0 connection , do the last step also on switch B and see what happenes

    Cheers

    Using the way as adviced by Uli, I found the faluty SFP on port0 on SWITCHA.

    Posted 07-24-2013 12:59 PM

    Hi TechHelp24,

    Your advices in this thread are very helpful to me, so, I am reviewing all you have said.  the following seems steps to setup the turnk. My question is:

    why do I need to disable the persistent (portcfgpersistentdisable), then enable it in the end(portcfgpersistentenable) of these steps? Is this required?

    portcfgpersistentdisable -->> Port_Number

    portcfgspeed --> fix 8G

    portcfgeport  --> Set Port Mode 2 E-Port only

    portcfglongdistance LE Set VC init 1

    portcfgqos --> Set on Off

    portcfgnpivport --> Set on Off.

    Trunking ( usually ) is by default enable, if no make the port trunking capable

    portcfgtrunkport --> Port_Number 1

    Set configured Port "portcfgpersistentenable"

    Also, although it is working fine, trunkshow, and switchshow all seems good. However, when I do portshow 0 I am still getting No_License. I tried portlogclear, and portstatsclear 0, no help

    If

    However, when I do portshow 0 I am still getting No_License.

    revers to

    > portshow 0

    portName:

    portHealth: No License

    Then it has to do with a fabric watch other licensed feature.

    It just telling you that feature is not installed/activated/licensed.

    The port itself is licensed, as you already knew.

    seems that you have 2 trunks now. one port 0 and one with port 1 to 3.

    all ports in a trunk must have the same speed.

    trunkshow and islshow should tell you more.

    I would do a portcfgdefault 0 on both switches, if you have 4G swiotches. otherwise do a portcfgspeed 0 4 afterwards

    Could it be that one of your SFP's only capable to run @ 2G?

    Guess the correct command is sfpshow to see the capabilities of you port 0 sfp's

    Cheers
