Marginal status. Brocade 200e


Please help.

One of our brocade switches has a "Marginal status ".

Error log :

Sv Jan 15 2012 21:05:55 GMT+00:00WarningRes Flash 0, is above high boundary(High=85, Low=0). Current value is 87 Percentage(%).Switch11071FW-1402fcsw-m1-1

I have tried supportsave -R, but did not help. No core files found.

What can I do next?

Can I see the flash filesystem?

--->>>Can I see the flash filesystem?

about FW-1403, this message is usually visible if Flash percentage is increases.

login as "root" execute the command df to verify the used flash percentage.

FW-1424 stay indicated:

Indicates that the switch status is not in a healthy state. This occurred because of a policy violation.

Run the switchStatusShow command to determine the policy violation.

FW-1402, try with the command "supportsave" to move dump file to FTP.

Re: Marginal status. Brocade 200e


But I understood, that "supportsave -R" should delete dump file as well. Is it right? Or I have to use "supportsave" to move dump file as you described.

df output :

Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on

/dev/root               121008     99992     14772  87% /

/dev/hda1               120992     98736     16012  86% /mnt

Try command 'cleanup' in order to clean obsolte files. You may decrease the used space in the switch file systems.
