Brocade 8470: monitoring internal storage vlan 1002

  • 1.  Brocade 8470: monitoring internal storage vlan 1002

    Posted 06-13-2013 11:50 PM

    Hi all,

    we have two IBM BladeCenter H, each of them with two Brocade 8470 Switches. Now I want to monitor the internal storage vlan with its default vlan id 1002. If I use a snmpwalk to get information about this one I will get the results attached below. My problem is, that this interface is shown as down. Is there an other way to monitor the internal storage vlan? On all other interfaces or configured vlans that procedure works as aspected.b
