Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

Error 1006.0005 can appear on a Qlogic fibre channel switch when using ACL zones. If you don’t need ACL zones, then the easiest thing to do here is to swap the offending zone back to a soft zone. To do so, open the Qlogic Switch and use the Edit menu to select “Edit Zoning …” Screen Shot 2014-03-05 at 2.12.57 PM From the zone editor, right-click on the zone to change and click on Set Zone Type. Screen Shot 2014-03-05 at 2.17.24 PM From the Set Zone Type pop-up, click on the option for Soft. Screen Shot 2014-03-05 at 2.18.37 PM Save the zoning and provided that you can actually use soft zones you are done. Now, what if you can’t use soft zoning? In that case, I find that this error specifically comes up when you have a device in a soft and ACL-based zone. To rectify that, either switch the soft zone to ACL or define the port in the ACL zone and the WWN in the soft zone.

Lost the password for your Qlogic?  You can TFTP a new firmware file into a 5xxx switch and then do a factory reset while it’s in maintenance mode (follow the instruction exactly as they are in the latest version of the manual for your switch).  Or if you have a serial adapter you can break the boot sequence by using the space bar during boot.  At the prompt use:

factory 1

If you factory reset it then the default IP address will be 10.0.0.1 again and the default password will be back to password.  If you have the password and just want to reset it back to factory defaults then you can use the following steps:

Sanbox login: prom Password:   0) Exit   1) Image Unpack   2) Reset Network Config   3) Reset Password File   4) Copy Log Files   5) Remove Switch Config   6) Remake Filesystem   7) Reset Switch  Option: 3 OK, password file has been reset to factory defaults.   0) Exit   1) Image Unpack   2) Reset Network Config   3) Reset Password File   4) Copy Log Files   5) Remove Switch Config   6) Remake Filesystem   7) Reset Switch  Option: 7 Are you sure you want to reboot the switch? (y/n) y   0) Exit   1) Image Unpack   2) Reset Network Config   3) Reset Password File   4) Copy Log Files   5) Remove Switch Config   6) Remake Filesystem   7) Reset Switch  Option: 0
