What is the resolution to this issue? This post didn't give any error codes from the SADE GUI, once the Domain ID's were restored. Hard to diagnose without an error response. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

Hi!
if you are working with Port-Zoning, you have to update your Zone-Configuration after changing the Domain-ID.
If you look in Zone-Admin you can see the Zone-Members are Displayed like this: 1,0 ; 1,1 etc

Now, if you are changing the domain-id from 1 to 2, the name of the ports are 2,0 ; 2,1 ...
Zone Members are still 1,0 ; 1,1 ...

Add the new ports to the zone and delete the old ones, then it should work.

Regard, Stefan

I cannot connect using serial console port (no signal / data out of serial console port). I don't have IP address of the DS4100B. I don't have its password... How can I reset it to factory default?


I am assuming you will still need console connection to do a password recovery.. however, here is the link to one password recovery doc that may help.

How do I connect to SAN switch with serial cable


If am not mistaking I believe the is an port on the switch for a serial connection. There should have been a serail cable that came with the switch. It should be RJ-45 to RJ-45 and on one end of this cable there should be an RJ-45 to RS232 adapter.
Connect the one end to the switch and the other to the computer, with or without the aforementioned adapter. I do not recall the COM setting needed but you can visit the HP support website for the manuals of your switch. The HP part number you want to search is A7987A. This is basically a Brocade switch under the hood.
Good luck.

MCDATA 4500 firmware


The Sphereon 4500 (ES-4500) line was purchased by Brocade when Brocade acquired McData back in 2007. These SAN switches and others were marketed using an OEM/reseller model and HP was one of them along with others. So, this switch may still be under and support contract with either Brocade or via one of the OEMs or resellers. If that is the case, then the firmware may be downloaded from whomever the support contract is with. I'm sorry if this seems very complicated but I wanted to explain why it might come from HP or from others depending on the relationship the switch came from.

D-link cant accesed internet 4pc


Most of DSL modems are connected to PC with USB cable...
n if ur server is connected with other pc on lan .. you can use internet sharing option available in winxp.

Following are the steps to enable Internetsharing for other pcs.


How to use Internet Connection Sharing loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); To use Internet Connection Sharing to share your Internet connection, the host computer must have one network adapter that is configured to connect to the internal network, and one network adapter or modem that is configured to connect to the Internet.

On the host computer loadTOCNode(3, 'summary'); On the host computer, follow these steps to share the Internet connection:
  1. Log on to the host computer as Administrator or as Owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Network and Internet Connections.
  4. Click Network Connections.
  5. Right-click the connection that you use to connect to the Internet. For example, if you connect to the Internet by using a modem, right-click the connection that you want under Dial-up.
  6. Click Properties.
  7. Click the Advanced tab.
  8. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
  9. If you are sharing a dial-up Internet connection, select the Establish a dial-up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box if you want to permit your computer to automatically connect to the Internet.
  10. Click OK. You receive the following message: When Internet Connection Sharing is enabled, your LAN adapter will be set to use IP
    address 192.168.0.1. Your computer may lose connectivity with other computers on
    your network. If these other computers have static IP addresses, it is a good idea to set them
    to obtain their IP addresses automatically. Are you sure you want to enable Internet
    Connection Sharing?
  11. Click Yes.
The connection to the Internet is shared to other computers on the local area network (LAN). The network adapter that is connected to the LAN is configured with a static IP address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0

let me know if it helps.

best regards,
