Cannot find nodes in the Lefthand Centralized Management Console

Hello,

I have a Lefthand SAN NSM2120 on a DL320 platform. For some reason I can't see any of the nodes in the management console. I know that there are nodes there because I have volumes that are attached to servers via the iSCSI interface and they are all functioning fine. My problem is that I can't see any of these things in the CMC. Don't know why. I can ping the ip interfaces on the subnet but no joy in the find nodes wizard. It all worked fine last time I used it. Any help is appreciated.

Ok, it just needed a reboot. Apparently the operating system on the SAN can keep operating in memory and keep the volumes mounted even while losing contact with the Central Management Console. I had to down the nodes and reboot the SAN. Once the SAN came back up I rebooted the nodes and they all reattached no problem and contact could be re-established to the SAN through the CMC.
