Description (partial)

In a scenario like the following:

   mds ------- n5k ------ end device

when you make config changes on int mgmt0 of the mds switch, the mds sends a SW_RSCN to n5k and the n5k in turn sends an ELS_RSCN to end devices. That ELS_RSCN may trigger a logout of the end device from the fabric.

Also, when the mgmt port of the n5k itself changes, the n5k sends ELS_RSCNs to end devices, which again may trigger a log out from the fabric.

Applies to the following platforms only : Nexus 5500, Nexus 5600 and Nexus 6000 switches
Applies to the following NXOS versions	: 5.2(1)N1(6) and later and 6.0(2)N2(1) and later

N5K/N6K is in switching mode (non NPV mode).
