AG mode port mapping issue: Configured_F_Ports and Current_F_Ports

Hi all,

I have one switch was configured as AG mode,

chs00122swm7:admin> switchshow
switchName:     chs00122swm7
switchType:     72.3
switchState:    Online
switchMode:     Access Gateway Mode
switchWwn:      10:00:00:05:33:3f:5c:30
switchBeacon:   OFF

Index Port Address Media Speed State     Proto

==============================================

...........

17  17   011100   id    N8   Online      FC  N-Port  10:00:00:05:1e:4f:70:00 0x301800 (Trunk port, master is Port 18 )(AoQ)

18  18   011200   id    N8   Online      FC  N-Port  10:00:00:05:1e:4f:70:00 0x301800 (Trunk master)  (AoQ)

..........

But i have one issue, if you look at Current_F_ports, all the F-ports are mapped to N-port 18. it supposes to be F-ports 9,11,13 mapped to N-port 17. Please take a look:

chs00122swm7:admin> ag --mapshow

Could someone  let me know how to move the F-port 9,11,13 to N-Port 17?

Any assistance will be greatly appreciatd!

Re: AG mode port mapping issue: Configured_F_Ports and Current_F_Ports

If port 17 & 18 are trunked "together" (as it appears they are) then essentially they are serving together as a "combined" port. The only way to map any of the blade HBAs to port 17 would be to break the trunk and then perform the mapping. =-Marc->
