In vFoglight Storage, my Brocade switches are not collecting, or I receive an error message that there are no switches in the Brocade agent (a yellow circle with an ‘!’ in it) after the Brocade SMIs agent host authenticates.
When I look at the Brocade SMIS agent the switches are not connected. When I authenticate them in the Brocade SMIS agent they give an error message of unsupported. In the DOS window “Error code 1” is returned.
This can be caused by having multiple NICs on the Brocade SMIs agent server. The Brocade SMIs agent is not always consistent on which NIC it sends data to.
Disabling one of the NICs has been allowed the Brocade to be authenticated in the Brocade SMIs agent.
Once the switches in the Brocade SMIs agent are authenticating, a re-validation of the Brocade SMIs agent server in vFoglight Storage will bring in all the Brocade switches. If the Brocade SMIs agent host has already been validated, right click it and move it up for revalidation. Then validate it.
