Any issues running 3.3(4b) Fabric Manager on 3.3(1c) switches?
I'm doing a little pre SAN-OS upgrade work (and changing out my FM Server backend DB from Postgres to Oracle 10g) and I see that the clone option is back (finally) in 3.3.(4b) fabric manager. We've run newer versions of Fabric Manager before, ran 3.1.x on a 3.0.x fabric for a while so I'm just wondering if I could upgrade my production management FM server (not just data collection but management) from the current SAN OS to a newer one before I install SAN-OS 3.3(4b) on my switches? It should be backwards compatible but . . . just wondering if someone else has the scars from this sort of activity.

Yeah that's the answer I'm getting from Cisco too. We've had some real flakey behaviour at odd times lately (zone sets that are inserted into the active zoneset but disappear when you try to activate, zone set renames that dont' take etc.) which all seem to be Java issues (i.e . it's slow and flakey and you're rdp'd to the FM server so that's in there too.) But we need to redo the FM server anyway and thought I'd make sure it was o.k. to upgrade at the same time.
