Description (partial)

Both Fabric interconnects think other FI is primary and itself is secondary. When this happens, DME functionality will not work and following error message is seen:
"Software Error: Exception during execution: {Error: Timed out communicating with DME].

This is very corner condition case when for some unknown reasons, the two FIs were not able to communicate between themselves for some time period. This forced HA election mechanism to kicked in, but did not successfully complete.
