Cisco MDS 9148 | Fabric Manager 5.01a | Two switches show on my map, but I only have one switch...

Unanswered Question
Apr 7th, 2011

Hello there,

I have two Cisco MDS 9148 and I am managing them with Fabric Manager. These switches are not connected to each other.

PROBLEM: When I open one of the fabric, Map on the fabric manager is showing two switches, and I noticed that VSAN WWN of vsan 1(default), is showing on the switch tab when i select the Fabric. As i tried to figure it out the problem, I did some "debug snmp trace" and I found an event, which is not shown in the other MDS Switch(which is working properly).

SNMP Event is shown below:

2011 Apr  6 12:37:38.046498 snmpd:  snmp_target_is_allowed_for_vrf: checking for filter criterion[]

2011 Apr  6 12:37:38.046542 snmpd: Number of filters set:0

2011 Apr  6 12:37:38.046579 snmpd: --snmp_target_vrf_resolv_context_id:Request for 

2011 Apr  6 12:37:38.046662 snmpd: Not found VRF config for target:

2011 Apr  6 12:37:38.046703 snmpd: l3vm_get_context_id for management returned 0

2011 Apr  6 12:37:38.046741 snmpd: fill_notif_tgt_usm_info : Bad VRF Id resolved for Target: Platform does not support context or returned invalid one

I would appreciate your opinion, in order to resolve this issue, which also could help others.



I have this problem too.

Hi Betim,

2162 is an SNMP trap port, so I don't think it's related to the issue.

Are you seeing a switch for each VSAN?

Hi dakester,

You are right, Fabric manager shows a switch for each vsan created on the Fabric, also for the deafult vsan 1.

I have the same switch 9148 and that one works perfect.

find attached screens from Fabric Manager.

Thanks for your assistance,

Just wondering if this got resolved?

(have a similar issue)

No, we couldn't fix it still. Anyway, I found out that when i create a community public, switch responds much faster.

I have restored system and kickstart from another same switch that works without any problem, but the problem stands still. Even I upgraded the OS problem exist.

I would appreciate your assistance if you fix your switch.

Hi Betim,

I may have identified the Fabric Manger Bug.

What is the switch WWN?

'show wwn switch'

Hi Dakester,

Here are the information for the switch.

Switch: Cisco MDS 9148

This will be fixed it in the next releases of Fabric Manager 5.2,  5.0,  and 4.2

The MDS9148 with new OUI 64-00-f1 will requires Cisco Fabric Manager Release 5.04D and later. The new OUI was not updated on the older releases
