Fabric Binding - Conflicting entries in the databases

virescent

Hi guys,

I've a new switch that I'd like to merge with the existing fabric.

I'm now working only with VSAN 1, and I have fabric-binding feature enabled and port-security feature disabled. I would like to configure fabric binding to allow merging it.

My configuration database has two entries, and the active database is empty:

switch# sh fabric-binding database active

--------------------------------------------------

Vsan   Logging-in Switch WWN     Domain-id

--------------------------------------------------

switch# sh fabric-binding database

--------------------------------------------------

Vsan   Logging-in Switch WWN     Domain-id

--------------------------------------------------

1      20:00:00:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa   0x9c(156) [Local]

1      20:00:00:bb:bb:bb:bb:bb      0x5(5)

[Total 2 entries]

WWN 20:00:00:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa is taken from "show wwn switch" output; 20:00:00:bb:bb:bb:bb:bb comes from the same output of another switch (with DomainID 5).

When I try to enable it, I receive this error and I cannot understand why:

switch(config)# fabric-binding activate vsan 1

Error for VSAN 1: Conflicting entries in the databases. Use force option to override.

switch(config)# fabric-binding database diff active vsan 1

Legend: "+" New Entry, "-" Missing Entry, "*" Possible Conflict Entry

---------------------------------------------------------------------

-  1      20:00:00:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa   0x9c(156) [Local]

-  1      20:00:00:bb:bb:bb:bb:bb      0x5(5)

switch(config)# fabric-binding database diff conf vsan 1

Legend: "+" New Entry, "-" Missing Entry, "*" Possible Conflict Entry

---------------------------------------------------------------------

+  1      20:00:00:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa   0x9c(156) [Local]

+  1      20:00:00:bb:bb:bb:bb:bb      0x5(5)

Even if I force activation, at the next change of the config DB I obtain the same error.

Can anybody help me please?

Hi, Cisco said that it's a bug in NX-OS 5.0.
