I'm Not 100% sure, but it show to me from command description in Command Reference Guide, you need first to disable NPIV before can use L Port such as FL Port.

I believe this is actually more a function of blade type rather than an across-the-board statement about DCX. Below you'll see me change a DCX port to L on an FC8-16 and FC8-32 port blade, but not on an FC8-48.
brodcx-60:admin> switchshow | grep switchType
brodcx-60:admin> slotshow -m | grep FC8
1 SW BLADE 37 FC8-16 ENABLED
3 SW BLADE 55 FC8-32 ENABLED
9 SW BLADE 51 FC8-48 ENABLED
brodcx-60:admin> portcfglport 1/0 1
brodcx-60:admin> portcfglport 3/0 1
brodcx-60:admin> portcfglport 9/0 1
Port does not support L-port
Blades with lower port counts should still be able to do it.

The reason why you cannot configure a L-port in a FC8-48 is because the area IDs are shared with different port IDs within the blade. Due to this fact, FC-AL is not supported on this type of blade.
