Just few F-ports cannot work in some LSAN zones!

[ Edited ]

We have two DCXes with FOS 7.2.0d that are connected via IFL.
It is so strange that few F-ports in some LSAN zones cannot work though the corresponding configuration are all right!
But it is much more extraordinary that these F-ports can work fine with their own local zones and the other local F-ports can work fine with the same remote F-ports in those problematic LSAN zones !

 

For example:
The following LSAN_JCPMSDB1_i6k cannot work, but the local JCPMSDB1_TapeZone can work fine with the same host F-port,  and also the other similar LSAN_aixtest01_i6k can work fine with the same remote SCi6000_<n> TapeDrives!

Notes:  if we change the JCPMSDB1_BAK from port 8/44 to another port, then the LSAN_JCPMSDB1_i6k can also work fine!

Anyone can help me for decoding the hex code of portlogdump for the JCPMSDB1_BAK on the port 8/44 ?

Notes: The contents of the  Portlogdump Reference Guide is just too older and incomplete !
