IOM connecting FI error - Fabric unsupported connection

Hi Guys,

Not sure if anyone face the same scenario with me.

I have a B series Chassis with two IOM card ( model : 2208XP) which is 8 external port / 10Gb.

while the bundle come with 8 10Gbase-CU cables, I connect the first 4 port on IOM-1 to Fi-A and first 4 port on IOM-2 to FI-B

IOM1      FI-A

1               Port 1

2               Port 2

3               Port 3

4               Port 4

IOM2      FI-B

1               Port 1

2               Port 2

3               Port 3

4               Port 4

However base on my observation the server port role works fine on IOM1 - FI-A

on IOM 2 we can only see fabric 2/1 to 2/3 ( 3 link) while the Led light on 2/4 is up but not shown in UCS manager.

There is also a major error message :

iom1/2 current connectivity does not match discovery policy or connectivity is unsupported

I also tried to access NXOS in the FI and notice that the port is up, show port-channel summary tell me 4 port channel are up.

Please refer to the attachment for screenshot.

IOM connecting FI error - Fabric unsupported connection

Hello,

Please provide the following output

connect nxos b

show fex

show int fex

show run int eth 1/23 - 25

If they are not in production, can you try re-acknowledging the chassis ?

Re: IOM connecting FI error - Fabric unsupported connection

Hi Ks,

How are you? Did you make sure port 26 (or the fourth port )on fabric B is configure as server port?  If you configured it as an uplink or something else and there is a link between them the port is going to show as UP, so make sure it is a server port.

The reason you are getting the error message is because you have ports that are un acknowledge (see ucsiom.jpg) to resolve this issue you have  to re-ack your chassis.  I recommend that before you re-ack your chassis you make sure that all ports are configure properly.  Otherwise you may have to re-ack the chassis multiple times. When you re-ack you chassis, it will bring the connectivity down for some time, so make sure to schedule a maintenance window during this time.

Please try this and let me know if it helps.

Hi Manuel. I'm facing the same problem, only one question for you.  What exactly does a reack of the chassis? It will reboot all the server in the chassis? The only thing that will be affected is the connectivity?

Best regards.

Hi Samuel,

The re-ack of the chassis does not reboot the servers in the chassis it will only bring donw the connectivity of the servers for sometime.

Hi Samuel,

I don’t have specific numbers but it should be down for a short time.

Re: IOM connecting FI error - Fabric unsupported connection

Hi Ks,

I was just wondering if you were able to try what we proposed.

Re: IOM connecting FI error - Fabric unsupported connection

Hi Manuel,

sorry for the late response. I tried to re-ack the chassis multiple time but not help.

Not sure why the fourth port is not able to configured into fex mode, although it is serverport in UCSM
