HBAs missing from FDMI output

New to brocade commands.  Trying to understand the output of the FDMIshow and what it means.

We are missing about 6 HBAs from the commands output on our 4424 Dell Brocades.

Fabric OS  V5.3.0_emb1

Thanks in advance

Re: HBAs missing from FDMI output

You have to enable FDMI on the HBA's. If they come with a driver that doesn't support FDMI you're out of luck and have to complain the to the HBA vendor. I agree this is one of the most helpful sections in a supportsave when trying to map and identfy devices in a fabric.

It is part of the FC standard but not every vendor has implemented it on their devices.
