ISL Issue/Question

    Has anyone seen this.  switchinfo.html shows the below

    Our switch information shows the belowList of
    Switch ID Worldwide Name Enet IP Addr FC IP Addr
    1: fffc01 50:00:51:e3:7d:72:1f:02
    76: fffc4c 10:00:00:05:1e:36:20:34 >"switch76"
    209: fffcd1 10:00:00:05:1e:ec:89:00 "switch209"
    The Fabric has 3 switches

    While islshow shows

    switch209:admin> islshow
    1:153->221 10:00:00:05:1e:36:20:34 76 switch76 sp: 4.000G bw: 4.000G
    2:269->173 10:00:00:05:1e:36:20:34 76 switch76 sp: 4.000G bw: 4.000G

    We were wondering if someone connected a second cable between sw76 and sw209 and then pulled the cable.

    Islshow looks fine to me, fabricshow is a bit weird as domain 1 shows no management info like ip and name.

    Appearently switch209 hangs of 76 (ie cascaded fabric) and domain one should hang of switch 76 to form a 3 switch fabric.

    Without any background info there's not much to say.

    Me question to you "What did you expect to see"?
