Hello,We recently had an issue with Brocade to Cisco UCS connectivityI was cleaning up some incorrect zones on half the fabric. I removed a rather large group removing half the pathing. All the ESXi hosts lost pathing briefly and we had to reboot them to fix it.From the Storage Arrays to Brocade to Cisco UCS the pathing showed that it was connected. VMware reported losing storage. Oracle VM manager reported losing storage.The Vendors are both claiming there was no pathing issue. Our executive wants an answer.
Has anyone experienced issues like this between Brocade SAN switches and Cisco UCS
Have a root through the connections on the Brocade side for any signs of errors. We've had a few hardware problems with UCS and Cisco are, shall we say, a little shy in holding their hands up. One particular occasion, Cisco support swore blind there was no issue until we collated a body of evidence that proved that the errors (that caused an outage similar to yours), couldn't have come from anywhere else but from within their chassis. We got a reply to that saying they'd, rather coincidentally, just spotted exactly that issue and were looking to resolve it. What are the chances, eh? ;)
