I have a customer with a dead SAN Switch 300. We suspect a failed power supply. I have a new, replacement switch but rather than swap out a virgin, unconfigured switch I am wondering what others think about swapping the power supply from the new unit to the old unit. Or, possibly swapping the memory card from the failed unit into the new unit.
The goal here is to preserve the customer's configuration and avoid reconfiguration.
There is another 300 switch on this SAN, would that config automatically populate to a new switch when added into the fabric?
It's been a while since I have had to work with a FC network.
Thanks in advance for any replies,
you cannot move CF from One Switch to another due follow reason:
License Key are saved in CF, and the License are associate with Switch WWN Number.
-->>There is another 300 switch on this SAN, would that config automatically populate to a new switch when added into the fabric?
If the defective switch is member the same Fabric ( both switches was connected via ISL ) then yes, the config is saved in the second switch in the Fabric.
Brocade 300 usually don't have spare part, if the switch is under mainatenance then you have to open a RMA and replace the entire switch.
