AIX VIO server( AIX p750) looses connectivity to switch

Switch: DS-5300B

Error: , 80924,, WARNING, DEN304_W2, Probing failed on F-port 51.

Work Around: Customer did the following as a workaround to get the path up and runnig again:

Remove the hba from the vio configuration and readd it again.
# rmpath -p fscsi1 -d
# rmdev -l fcs1 -R
# cfgmgr -l fcs1

However the issue re-ocurred

Hi,

Brocade Message refence guide tells a little different workaround for this issue:

"This can happen when the firmware on the device controller on the specified port has a defect. Check with the device vendor for a firmware upgrade containing a defect fix."

Does this port ever run a NPIV port before?

Is the NPIV function enabled?

I hope this helps,

Andreas
