Documentation Updates for Fabric OS v7.0.1
The updates in this section are for the Fabric OS Command Reference, publication number
53-1002447-01, published December 15, 2011.
The note on page xxi in the Preface includes an incorrect platform reference. The note should read:
portCfgOctetSpeedCombo - Not supported on the Brocade 6505; supported on the Brocade FC8-32E
and FC8-48E port blades only with the default combination.
portCfgDPort
Add the following configuration option to the portCfgDport --enable command:
portcfgdport --enable [slot/]port_list dwdm
Skips the optical loopback test when you run the D_Port diagnostics over a Dense
Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) link or any third party equipment that
connects two switches.
D_Port functionality is only available on 16Gbit-capable platforms with 16Gb SFPs and 10Gb FC SFPs.
portCfgShow
On page 688, add the following descriptions under the "Non-GbE port displays" section:
Octet Speed Combo: Displays the current octet speed combo setting. This parameter is set by the
portCfgOctetSpeed command. In unsupported platforms, this display is not
shown
D-Port over DWDM
Displays ON when the D_P ort is configured over a DWDM link. This parameter is
set by portCfgDPort command and displays only if portcfgDPort is configured
with the dwdm option.

Correct the description of the enable option as follows:
--enable
Enables the RTLog on the active Control Processor (CP). The RTLog becomes
effective on the standby CP after a failover or a reboot of the active CP.
Documentation Updates for Fabric OS v7.0.0
The updates in this section are for the Fabric OS Command Reference, publication number
53-1002147-01, published April 2011.
bottleneckMon
On page 74, add the error message ID (RAS Cx-1018) to the description of the credit recovery feature as
shown:
When used with the -recover onLrThresh option, recovery is attempted through repeated link resets
and a count of the link resets is kept. If the threshold of more than two link resets per hour is reached, the
blade is faulted (RAS Cx-1018). Note that regardless of whether the link reset occurs on the port blade or
on the core blade, the port blade is always faulted.
configure
The configure command was accidentally omitted from the “Modified Commands” section in the
Preface. The command was modified to add the Enforced FLOGI/FDISC login parameter.
configureChassis
Add the following note to the configureChassis command: All configuration changes made by this
command are non-disruptive. It is not necessary to disable the switch.
On page 151, and in the associated manual page, replace the description of the system.i2cTurboCnfg
parameter with the following text:
system.i2cTurboCnfg value
Configures the i2c driver that manages processing of the i2c interrupts. The
I2CTurbo mode is enabled (Setting 1) by default on all 16G platforms running
Fabric OS v7.0 firmware. The mode is disabled by default for any switches
capable of running v6.4x and v6.3x firmware. An upgrade preserves the
pre-upgrade configuration. The value shown in square brackets is the current
value. The following values are supported:
0
Disables the I2C Turbo mode. When the I2C Turbo mode is disabled, every byte
received by an i2c interrupt is scheduled for processing by the given task or
process. This permits other high priority processes to complete, thereby allowing
for possible delay in the receipt of the I2C response message.
1
Enables the I2C turbo mode for SFPs. This is the default setting. When the I2C
Turbo mode is enabled, every I2C byte received from an SFP is processed by the
interrupt handler itself, thus preventing any higher priority processes from
preempting this processing.
2
For internal use only.

cryptoCfg
cryptoCfg
On page 159, modify the description of the cryptocfg - -reg -KAClogin parameter as shown and add the
example in the example section:
--reg -KAClogin
Registers the node KAC login credentials (username and password) with the
configured key vaults. This command is valid for the Thales nCipher (TEMS), the
HP SKM, and the TKLM key vaults. This command must be run on each member
node. For key vault configuration procedures, refer to the Fabric OS Encryption
Administrator's Guide for your specific key vault product.
On page 165, add the TKLM key vault to the set of key vaults displayed by the --show groupcfg
command.
The NCKA key vault is now referred to as TEMS and should be updated in all places where the NCKA
key vault is mentioned.
Use the --show -groupcfg command to display encryption group and member configuration parameters,
including the following parameters:
•
•
Encryption group name: user-defined label
Encryption group policies:
•
Failback mode: Auto or Manual
Replication mode: Enabled or Disabled
Heartbeat misses: numeric value
Heartbeat timeout: value in seconds
Key Vault Type: LKM, RKM, SKM, TEMS, or TKLM.
System Card: Disabled or Enabled
• For each configured key vault, primary and secondary, the command shows:
-
IP address: The key vault IP address
Certificate ID: the key vault certificate name
State: connected, disconnected, up, authentication failure, or unknown.
Type: LKM, RKM, SKM, TEMS, or TKLM
On Page 173, replace the example for exporting the master key with the example shown:
To export the master key to the RKM key vault:
SecurityAdmin:switch> cryptocfg --exportmasterkey
Enter passphrase:*******
Confirm passphrase:*******
Master key exported.
Master Key ID: 11:95:82:cd:80:88:41:31:42:dd:c3:5f:d0:a7:95:55

portLoopBackTest
Augment the note on page 751 and in the corresponding man pag as followse:
This diagnostic cannot be run on an operational switch. You must disable the switch using the
chassisDisable command before you can run this test. After the test completes, re-enable the switch
using the chassisEnable command.
Do NOT use the switchDisable command followed by manually shutting down the ports before
running the test. This will not work, because executing switchEnable, after the test completes, will leave
the ports in the same state as before. The only way to bring the ports down before running the test and
back up after the test completes is by using the chassisDisable command followed by the
chassisEnable command
turboRamTest
:Augment the note section of the turboRamTest help pages as followse:
This diagnostic cannot be run on an operational switch. You must disable the switch using the
chassisDisable command before you can run this test. After the test completes, re-enable the switch
using the chassisEnable command.
portLedTest
:Augment the note section of the portLedtestTest help pages as followse:
This diagnostic cannot be run on an operational switch. You must disable the switch using the
chassisDisable command before you can run this test. After the test completes, re-enable the switch
using the chassisEnable command.
slotShow
In the Notes section, the following note to clarify the description of slot 5 in a DCX and in a DCX-4S.
In a DCX-4S, slot 5 is occupied by a control processor blade (Blade ID 50). On a DCX, slot 5 is occupied
by the core blade (Blade ID 52).
On page 927, the description for the -p operand should be clarified to avoid the impression that this
command displays real-time power consumption data. This is not the case. Real-time power
consumption data is displayed for 16G platforms only with the chassisShow command. The data
displayed in the "DC Power Consumption” column and in the summary field "Total DC Power
consumption” indicate the maximum allowed power consumption, not a real-time value.
-p
In addition to the basic slot status view, this command displays the following
information about power consumption:
•

Decommissioned Key IDs dialog box
When disk LUNs are decommissioned, the process includes the disabling of the key record in the
key vault and indication that the key has been decommissioned. These decommissioned key IDs
are still stored on the switch. You can display, copy, and delete them as an additional security
measure.
For RKM key vaults, you need to know the Universal ID (UUID) associated with the decommissioned
LUN key IDs to delete keys from the key vault. To delete decommissioned key IDs, you must first
display the vendor-specific UUIDs of decommissioned key IDs for RKM key vaults from the
Management application. You must then remove key attributes directly from the RKM key vault
server.

In scenarios where this master key propagation issue still persists, exporting the master key to a
file and recovering it resolves the issue. To do this, use the following commands:

Documentation updates for Fabric Watch v7.0.0 and later
Chapter 1. Fabric Watch
In the existing “Fabric Watch licensing” section, the following paragraph is incorrect:
Fabric Watch is an optionally-licensed feature of Fabric OS. Each switch within a fabric needs its
own license, and that license is valid only for a particular version of the feature. If you want a newer
version of the feature, you must purchase a new license.
This paragraph should read as follows:
Fabric Watch is a optionally-licensed feature of Fabric OS. Once you purchase a Fabric Watch
license for a platform, the license remains valid for the life of that platform and across firmware
versions that are supported on that platform.
The following is new licensing information and should be added as a subheading to “Fabric Watch
licensing:”
Universal temporary license support
The Fabric Watch license is available as a Universal Temporary or a regular temporary license,
meaning the same license key can be installed on any switch running Fabric OS version 6.3 or later.
Universal temporary license keys can only be installed once on a switch, but can be applied to as
many switches as required. Temporary use duration (the length of time the feature will be enabled
on a switch) is provided with the license keys.
Chapter 8. System Monitoring
The following information does not currently exist in the Fabric Watch Administrator’s Guide, and
will be added at the next major release of Fabric OS:
The default Fabric Watch policy for the Brocade DCX 8510-8 with total power consumption of more
than 2000w does not properly reflect the switch status on the power supply. Fabric Watch users
must manually update their default configuration for the minimum number of power supplies to
three if they have installed more than 256 ports in an 8510-8 chassis.
