BNA 11.1.3 zoning doesn't show attached F-ports on DCX at FOS 6.4.1a, only displays E-ports (ISls).

    BNA 11.1.3 monitoring two Fabrics (amongst others), based on a pair of Brocade DCXs at 6.4.1a.

     

    Wishing to use BNA zoning tab to view attached F-port alisases on each DCX.....one fabric DXC displays both F-ports and E-ports but other only shows the E-ports.

     

    Any thoughts please - ?  Is this swtichbased rather than BNA related ......logging on to DCX in question the "swtichshow" output displays F-ports and E-ports as expected.

    I'm replying to my own question, at  least to update that this also manifests as a disrepancy in the output of "nsallshow" on

    the principal  and subordinate switch, i.e the 48k   and DCX  respectively.

     

    397 Nx_Ports in the Fabric }
    DCX:admin>

     

     

    253 Nx_Ports in the Fabric }
    DCX:admin>

     

     

     

    How does one remedy this discrepancy on the same fabric ?

    CORRECTION - correct switchnames now

    thanks for that dion re. the housekeeping...... any ideas on the ns issue ?

     

    we've attempted demoting / promoting fabricprincipal without success..... next up is a reboot -f on the 48k that shows the lower ns entries.

     

    Question is can i resignal the ns daemon - logged in a root - ie

    # kill -HUP

     

    I've searched but can't find any advise on restarting ns... other than via a reboot.
