SanHelath 4.0.7c runs fine with our 16 FC switches.
I have to add 4 new FC switches. Adding fails.
After adding IP username and password. "Add Switch/Fabric".
It starts logging in. Logging in is succesfull
First command after loggin in is: "fc show fabric 1"
Failed to get respnce from fc show fabric 1 after 5 minutes.
How can i fix this.
Previous the switches have been added with older sanhealth versions.
Does the setting of the new switches are 100Mb/s full duplex for all Ethernet interfaces?
Could you save the log of this occuring (The save Log icon is at the right of the activity log window) and send it to the SAN Health Admin team via SHAdmin@brocade.com
Could you also let us know the model names of the switches you are adding.
SH 4.0.7c did have a change in the initial device detection routine that was added to handle a new Cisco firmware level. With the logs we should be able to figure this out and get you back up and running.
San switch is 100Mb Full duplex and can be reached with SSH/Telnet. Switch works o.k.
I just mailed the requested logfile to 'SHAdmin@brocade.com'

Brocade support asked to change timing.
I think it is most likely to be a timing issue given that the initial connection attempt failed and it looks like the second attempt did not completely receive the login prompt.
So lets slow SAN Health down using the Options menu
First change “How long to wait for port to connect” from 8 seconds up to 20 seconds.
Then also slow SAN Health down by changing “How patient and forgiving of slow command responses” from Normal to Slow
This did not solve the problem.
I changed from telnet to SSH. This did go arond the issue and I can add the switches to sanhealth.
Thanks fro help
