Hi everyone!

When establishing an SVF network, the level 1 AS(S5700 ) successfully connects with the parent(S12700) but the level 2 AS (S5700) cannot connect with the level 1 AS

The following logs are received: 

Jul 28 2016 09:12:54+02:00 DST S12700 MBR/5/CONNECTERROR:OID Connection error on the fabric-port in unified management. (Reason=The switch has been in uni-mng system force mode. (GigabitEthernet0/0/3 on AS-level1))

Hi friend!

The alarm in question announces that the level 2 switch has been forcibly configured in client mode, hence is not being able to start the negotiation with the level 1 AS.

To solve the problem, we would need to configure the mode of the level 2 AS to standalone by running the “undo uni-mng enable " command  in the user interface on the level 2 AS

 Standalone mode: is the common switch mode. In this mode, the switch is an independently operating switch.  When the switch is in a standalone mode and has no configuration file and no input on the console port, the switch can perform auto-negotiation with the parent to select its working mode and continue the svf setup process.

Hope to help you!
