Migrating from Brocade BNA to SANnav-SNMP Discovery


Brocade SANnav integration is provided as early access and not supported for production use in IPM release 7.0.1.

Follow these guidelines to migrate from Brocade BNA to SANnav discovery:

  1. Before upgrading IPM, ensure that one successful discovery has been performed on IPM.

  2. Upgrade IPM and perform a successful discovery on the Brocade BNA integration configuration.


If discovery fails or is unsuccessful, contact Virtana Support.

  1. Ensure that there are no duplicate entities in your Brocade BNA integration configuration. If you come across duplicate entities, do not proceed. Contact Virtana Support.

  2. Delete the BNA integration configuration and ensure that all the entities are archived. If there is an error deleting the BNA integration, do not proceed. Contact Virtana Support.

  3. Click new integration configuration and select SANnav-SNMP Discovery from the Discovery Mode drop-down.

  4. Follow the instructions in the Configuring a Brocade SAN Integration for SANnav Discovery section.

  5. Verify that all the switches have been discovered in the SNMP Sources tab. If there are any missing switches:

    1. Perform a quick discovery to discover the missing switches.

    2. Add the missing switches using Add switch functionality. Provide the SSH and SNMP credentials to add the missing switches.

    3. Repeat the process until all the switches are discovered.

  6. Configure and subscribe the discovered switches.

  7. Save the configuration and perform a complete successful discovery.

  8. Ensure that the expected entities are created and there are no duplicate entities.
