Fabric OS - switch won't initialize?

Discussion in 'Storage' started by Patrick Young, Sep 9, 2003.

  1. We have a EMC DS-16B switch that boots, however never gets
    to be in an online and ready state. At the prompt most
    commands reveal "Switch not ready", and subsequent
    logins produce the message "WARNING: switch still
    initializing - please wait".

    The problem is it *never* finishes initializing. Forcing
    it online using the front panel shows an online status in
    switchshow, however this makes no difference as the switch
    remains "not ready".

    The boot sequence looks like this:

    -TELNET-I-ESCAPE, Escape character is ^]

    Fabric OS (tm) Release v2.4_test

    login: passed.

    Running Port Register Test .... passed.

    Running Central Memory Test ... passed.

    Running CMI Test .............. passed.

    Running CAM Test .............. passed.

    Running Port Loopback Test .... passed.
    Fail to get secure mode from flash.

    Fail to restore security mode.

    Many thanks for any pointers in troubleshooting this problem.

    You didn't mention how it got to this state. Is this a standalone switch or
    is part of a multiswitch fabric. Did it just fail one day or did it stop
    working after making a change to the switch/fabric? The firmware appears to
    be out of date also. I believe the current switch major firmware rev is 2.6,
    your is at 2.4. Give us some more details.
