Inconsistent results with BNA 14.01 on VDX6720

Can anyone tell me if BNA works with the 6720s any longer? The NOS is 3.01.

Im seeing inconsistent reports. When discovery was first performed I ran a report of VLAN 186, and it returned 9 ports across our two switches in fabric, as expected. Next day I run it again, and it shows me 2 ports in VLAN 186. If that was the case my Virtual SAN would have already fallen apart.

MAC address report shows me detected MACs on all appropriate ports except 2/0/4 where I'm expecting one. (CLI shows it), The detailed cluster report shows me the proper MAC detected attached to 2/0/4.

I used Brocade Network Advisor 12 last year and never saw these problems.

A "sh vl br" shows the correct ports assigned to VLANs. So what's wrong with the reports?


Hard to troubleshoot a problem or do inventory with such odd results.


Something I'm missing?
