I am not able to access Brocade MLXe8 switch through console although I am using the native console cable with the converter and valid session parameters.
it shows connected but no data on screen
I have two core switches so you mean to reboot one by one and monitor the serial connection ?
what about management port ? is there any option to connect my laptop with mgmt port if there is default mgmt IP address for same model
The best guess is, if you have two management boards, remove one. Then power - cycle it and take a look; if boot-up messages arrive on the serial. If this does not work, try out a possible second management board. If this also does not work, either the chassis got some issue or the serial cable is not pinned right.
Actually I need to access it through console to reset it to factory configuration (write erase) so even if there is other way like magmt port or hard reset it will be fine
please note that access though telnet or ssh is not possible currenty!
Is the MLX running, and can you access it via SSH/telnet?
Can you confirm that the serial cable is the original Brocade or compatible version?
From the enabled prompt, can you rconsole into the active management card?
