Re: After upgrade 8G switch 5100 becomed 4G

Hi

All saved clihistory at attachament.You may believe it or not but I have never ever used "firmwarecleaninstall"

 

How could I share via email restricted information about licenses?

Additional at info (sn, wwn) at attachement.

Re: After upgrade 8G switch 5100 becomed 4G

Hi

I think that the hardware restart has a significant impact on the problem. On the other two IBM Type 2980-B80 (B5300) switches until the restart everything was OK. The same upgrade path, same binaries with no problem until hardware reboot. After hard reboot same problem appeared.

restricted or whatever,.....License are unique, and associated to a Switch Serial Numer and WWN Number.

 

NOBODY!!!! can re-used the license, additional the license cannot be installed to another switch, for a simple reason ech switch have a unique SN and WWN

 

check into you PM Box

Re: After upgrade 8G switch 5100 becomed 4G

Hello,

 

are you pretty sure that someone did not remove license times ago ?

 

• Without an 8G license, even if there is an 8 Gbps SFP plugged into a port in an applicable
platform, the port would be enabled to run at a maximum speed of 4 Gbps.
• To obtain an 8G license, only the license ID from the switch is required. When you add the 8G
license, you must enter either the portDisable and portEnable commands on each individual
port on the switch, or the switchDisable and switchEnable commands on the switch, to enable
8 Gbps features.
• When you remove the 8G license, the ports that are online and already running at 8 Gbps are
not disturbed until the port goes offline or the switch is rebooted. The switch ports return to
their pre-licensed state maximum speed of 4 Gbps.

Check infro from license guide...so it looks like that you have same symptoms.

Re: After upgrade 8G switch 5100 becomed 4G

Hi

I'm 100% sure that no human being (me nor my colleague) have done that. First of all I have saved output of "licensesshow" and after upgraade I compare it. They are the same - no differences.

Today I make an observation that after cold reboot (sysshutdown, unplug power cords and restart) system change behavior: before reboot recognize 8g sfp and after opposite.

Hi

OK, licenses are unique but I have a old report from SAN Health. This is confidential, from my point of view.

Hare are licenseshow

fceg3:admin> licenseshow
cRSQbbd9dbdSTRci:
Fabric license
S9cyeQ9SScVAdzfq:
Fabric Watch (Fabric Vision capable) license
RyRQ9zzRyeSzSRAu:
Extended Fabric license
S9cyeQ9SScbAdzfw:
Trunking license
S9cyeQ9SScXAdzfs:
Performance Monitor (Fabric Vision capable) license
S9cyeQ9SScTQdzf4:
First Ports on Demand license - additional 8 port upgrade license
S9cyeQ9SScTAhzfs:
Second Ports on Demand license - additional 8 port upgrade license

 

The same as before upgrade.

Re: After upgrade 8G switch 5100 becomed 4G

Hello,

 

to be honest this is complex issue and may be related to hardware of FOS bug, without Brocade support you will be not able to solve this issue in short manner. 

 

You still dont provide right logs from port log dump port. Provided ouput is not from port 15 but mainly from port 3.  

You have to execute portlogdumpport <port_index>, then there is possiblty to use guide on URL bellow to troubhleshoot what is happening during speed change. The guide is from older date but its still usable. Port log dump has small buffer so on busy switch the messages might be wiped out in short time after speed change. So you have to collect logs immidiately after action..

Re: After upgrade 8G switch 5100 becomed 4G

Hi

Thank you for your help.

I know that this problem is not trivial. I'am for 100% sure that this is a software bug. But at which version? Two my switches 5100 and two 5300 have the same fault. The bug appears after hardware/power reboot. I have checked it. Port number has no meaning. Switch is totaly out of production now. Nothing is connectend. Look the fresh action on port 0.

 

At "Thu Apr 11 10:26:30 2019" switch was rebooted.
