When i was added an new node to an existing vcs fabric and checked the isl ports with “show fabric islports“, i seen at the new connected port the following error:
ESC distributed Config DB Conflict error
My mistake was, that i have preconfigured the new node with a ip adresse and some vlans. So the fabic detected an mismatch on the configurationdatabase. To fix this issue you need to set the new node to default config.
- Connect to the new node with serial port
- Unplug all isl ports on the new node
- overwrite the startup-config with “copy default-config startup-config“
- reboot the node
- plug the islports on the node and your fabric will be formed with the new node
