Hello,

check output of portshow command. It should be NPIV (N-Port)

 

check command portloginshow (slot/port) for details

Yes,  you are right!
Does it mean that each PWWN(including NPIV) would be corresponding to its own PID?

Re: The doubt about the PID of F-Port

Hello,

 

yes FC routing is based on PIDs so because of that all WWNs need to have own PID. 

For NPIV each "vritual" wwn will have dedicated PID as well.
