Re: Port type adaptive for L-port

Wrong configuration of the HBA is one possibility. The server admin can change the settings to switched instead of loop.

On the switch side you can disallow the port to be an L-Port with the command portcfggport.

If you run this command the traffic will be interupted.

I hope this helps,

Andreas
