Hi,

That command is to check the FC ports, not the ethernet ones.

Kind regards

hi,

With admin credentials you can use ping and ifmodeshow or ipaddrshow to test and check the eth0 config.

If you have root access to the switch, you can use all the standard linux tools, such as ifconfigmii-tool or ethtool to review the eth0 port.
