since I updated Cisco UCS Manager, all Chassis and Fabric Interconnects to version 2.2(1), I get some minor faults.
I configure ports 31 and 32 as FC uplink ports and mapped each port to a vsan:
Port 31 = VSAN "blue"
Port 32 = VSAN "red"
(I know, this is not common to map two diffrent VSANs to the same fabric, but I have to )
Since the update, I get minor faults:
Port 31 --> FCoE or FC uplink is down on VSAN "red" / membership-down
Port 32 --> FCoE or FC uplink is down on VSAN "blue" / membership-down
I have no FC port channels or FC trunking mode activated. Fabric Interconnect is in EHM.
Same in the other fabric.
Can someone help me or is this the same cosmetic issue as discussed in the quote?
FCoE Uplink vsan membership fault for any vsan not configured upstream Symptom:
Fabric Vsan Membership Down fault message on FCoE uplink ports
Name: Fabric Vsan Membership DownConditions:
Observed with UCSM 2.1 and when FCoE uplink port is configured on the Fabric InterconnectWorkaround:
None.Error message is cosmetic.
Thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
In FC NPV mode, each VSAN defined in UCS, is by default trunked in all uplinks, and this cannot be changed (similar to vlans, which are also included in all uplink trunks); in your case, you have one link per vsan, no vsan trunk, therefore its really a cosmetic issue.
Hope they will fix it soon. Now I have 24 warnings because I deleted some VLANs and create new ones. The old VLANs stuck in the warnings, too, either they do not exists anymore.
I have upgrated to 2.2(2d) , but the problem has still going on .
if we want to solve the issue ,
as we use anathor vsan which use uplink port .
shuld we make VSAN "blue" on FabricInterconnectA , and VSAN "red" on FaricInterconnectB ?
FabricInterconnectA has just VSAN "blue"
FabricInterconnectB has just VSAN "red"
you mean version 2.2(1d), right? They fixed similar problems. In 2.2(1c), all FC Uplinks (shut and no shut uplinks) failed. Now, only no shut uplinks fails.
If you use only one vsan per ucs fabric, you get no failure. This is the normal scenario for ucs, because normally you install the ucs in one rack / datacenter.
Release Notes of version 2.2(1d):
Erroneous minor faults “FCoE” or “FC uplink is down” are no longer displayed in Cisco UCS Manager when FC uplink interfaces are admin shut.
I saw this message , after upgradet to 2.2(1d)
but In several times , Cleared this message .
Fist of all ,
I Removed All FCoE Uplink Cable whose FabricInterconnect-A
I saw FCoE or FC uplink is down on VSAN Red and blue
but, FabricInterconnect-A has no VSAN blue in this port-Channel
In several times ,
FCoE or FC uplink is down on VSAN blue is clear.
I have no idea , when clear this messages .
