Anyone know what to make of this? I see no bugs about this, but I don't like how it shows the "suspend" in the "Show runn" yet the VSAN is clearly active. Anyone ever see this?
Is it because the Vsan is being used in Inertop mode between a McData switch and the Cisco switch? Would the McData switch know about Vsan's? Might show as Suspened but that's becuase of the mode it is running in. What does McData (Brocade) say about using Vsan's between switches?
McDATA and Brocade are unaware of VSAN's. That does not stop the MDS from running VSAN's however. A VSAN in interop mode can be active or suspended just as any other VSAN can. My issue is that the running-config shows as suspended when its clearly not, and I believe this may be a bug.
McData and Brocade really don't comment on VSAN's as its not something they supported (until recently on the DCX platform). A McData or Brocade really has no way of knowing that its talking to a virtualized fabric vs. a physical fabric.
