Hello Guys,

I havn't worked on these since NOS 6X, I have recently started to configure these units again and upgrade to 7.3.0aa (latest) I read somewhere that fabric cluster mode was retired (which is fine) - but mine seems to be in fabric cluster mode - I would like this in logical chassis mode.

Issue is I created my fabric with the following:

vcs set-rbridge-id 10 vcsid 10 (then you used to specify the mode) - this doesn't allow me to do that anymore.

Config Mode : Local-Only
VCS Mode : Fabric Cluster
VCS ID : 10
Total Number of Nodes : 1

Hi Chris,

Unfortunately you have to downgrade switch back to old version, enable logical-chassis and upgrade it again

Correct, as Yulia mentioned you will need to downgrade to a version prior to 7.1 per the Release notes, 7.0 is the last supported version for Fabric Cluster Mode

NOS 7.0.x was the last Major Release of Network OS supporting fabric cluster (FC) mode. – Network OS 7.1 supports logical chassis cluster (LC) mode only. From 7.0.0 onwards, the default mode is logical chassis cluster mode.
