The subject of this ballot does not materially
Emulex-001 E general affect our organization.
Here's a big one. The year says 2005, but Change to 2006 in multiple places in the
McDATA-01 E 1 Copyright we're in 2006 now. document.
What does it meant for an Nx_Port to be
connected to Nx_Ports outside of the physical
McDATA-02 E 5 third paragraph fabric? Are you talking about NL_Ports? If so mention loops.
Shouldn't you mention platforms and their
McDATA-03 E 5 third paragraph properties too? Add a platform description.
Please mention that the Fabric Configuration
McDATA-04 E 5 Fourth paragraph Server is part of the Management Service. Add a new sentence.These groups are incorrect because a Fabric
Configuration Server should not be told to
discover. The Discovery is always real time
and replies should not be sent out unless the Delete or extremely modify these groups.
McDATA-05 T 5 5.4.2 and 5.4.3 local FCS is accessed. See more in McDATA-08/09.
The last paragraph shouldn't end on the next
McDATA-06 E 9 last sentence page. Connect the sentence.
At least correct spacing on From T11-TC-
MIB. It would probably be better to have the
IETF use longer lines, so have the IETF
McDATA-07 E 9 Imports Tabbing on Imports is odd. change the 72 character/line limit.t11FcsFabricDiscoveryStart doesn't seem to
correlate with GS. A Fabric Configuration
Server is only on a single Fabric. So you
shouldn't be able to tell it to discover on
multiple Fabrics. It seems odd to tell a Fabric
Configuration Server to start discovery since it
is part of Nx_Port login. Are you saying that
the IE will query end devices or are you saying
t11FcsFabricDiscove the management instance will query the
McDATA-08 T 16 ryStart Switches? Please clarify.
Delete this timer because it is implementation

Symantec-001 E 5 3 In the 2nd sentence of the 5th paragraph, "The Fabric Configuration Server is designed
delete the second "it can be". so that it can be distributed among switches
and accessed from any Nx_Port.

replace "specification" by "version".
Symantec-003 E 7 5.3 The sentence "With multiple fabrics, each Clarify.

unclear. standards prior to FC-SW-4……."Symantec-005 T 14 6 The description of the Clarify
t11FcsFabricDiscoveryTable is the first
instance of the use of the term "locally-
managed switch". This needs some
clarification, and possible some definition in
section 5. I also don't remember this term
being used before. Is it intended to mean the
switch on which the FCS is implemented etc.

aborted ONLY if it was initiated from this
switch?
Symantec-008 T 19 6 In the Description of the t11FcsIeTable, please Clarify
clarify what is meant by "remote topology". The
term is not apparently used in GS-5.

uses the term "locally-managed switch".
Symantec-010 T 24 6 The description of the t11FcsPortListEntry uses Clarify

uses the term "locally-managed switch".
Symantec-014 T 30 6 The description of the t11FcsPlatformEntry ClarifySymantec-015 T 34 6 The format in GS-5 of the Management Change reference to include the Management
address referenced in the Address Value in GS-5 section 6.2.3.2.7
t11FcsPlatformSysMgmtAddr object includes a

object?
