Exit Print View

Updated: October 2019

Known Problems

The IB firmware upgrade is not supported in the BUI.
When running firmware 2.2, the BUI in the firmware upgrade does not work. The BUI also does not work for upgrades and downgrades between 2.2 firmware versions or downgrades to the 2.1 firmware. However, the BUI in the firmware upgrade from 2.1 to 2.2 works.
Workaround: Use the ILOM CLI upgrade and downgrade tool as a workaround.
The default location for the toolbox config files (cli and fabric conf) are not correct.
The default location for the toolbox config files are not in the config directory, so if using this default location, future firmware updates will overwrite the configuration and the user will need to re-enter the configuration.
Workaround: Do not use the default location for the toolbox config files, instead specify the location that will be used for future firmware versions, which is /config/conf/. using the toolbox CLI.
smpartition command fails from firmware version 2.0 switch with firmware version 2.1 or 2.2 peer.
In a mixed firmware fabric where the master Subnet Manager is on a switch with firmware version 2.0 and other gateways or switches in the fabric are firmware version 2.1 or 2.2, issuing the smpartition commit command fails.
Workaround: When you use the smpartition commands to partition the mixed firmware fabric, issue the commands from a master Subnet Manager on a switch or gateway with firmware version 2.1 or 2.2.
No way to set Fabric Monitor console timeout.
The Fabric Monitor will timeout after 15 minutes of idle time.
Workaround: You must log in to the web interface and start the Fabric Monitor again.
