    Hello,

     

    I have problem with switch.

    After upgrade from 6.4.2b to 7.0.0c

     

     when I logon to switch by  root I have this :

     

    **************************************************************
    * *
    * Fabric OS has detected frequent switch reboot condition. *
    * Following actions can be taken to recover the switch: *
    * - remove or replace any problem blades (if applicable to *
    * platform). *
    * - use supportsave to collect supportsave data. *
    * *
    **************************************************************
    fabsys device open: No such device or address
    Raslog Module Initialisation failed rc=-1
    fabsys device open: No such device or address

     

    Regards,

    Roger

    Do what it tells you to do:

     

     - use supportsave to collect supportsave data. *

     

    Open a case with IBM, describe the fault and send the supportsave to them.

    IBM no longer supports the IBM Bladecenter or FCSMs within.   Support was transitioned to Lenovo over 2 years ago

    when Lenovo bought IBM's System X product line.  Support call should be directed to Lenovo.

     

    Checking the Lenovo site ( https://datacentersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/servers/bladecenter) and arbitrarily selecting Chassis type H, the latest Brocade f/w is 7.0.2d6 for 8Gb FCSM.  I do not see the version v7.0.0c listed.
