JRE 64 bit is not supported.

You must install JRE 1.6.x for x86

Re: Webtools Java Error

Hi guys,

@ Did you install the required Java version and was it helpful?

@ Could you please share a compatibility matrix or link for brocade switch / java versions? Could this error message be related to the web browser as well?

Thanks in advance for the replies.

Try with this 2 options:

1.   with user root, restart the webserver service.

-- execute /fabos/libexec/webdconfigure

in http attrib : "yes"

restart http "yes".


2. With more careful, force an ha falilover:

-- execute hafailover.
