SAN SN6500B switch port doesn't show NPIV

Dear all,

 

We have SN6500B 96 port where we have connected a VM with NPIv.

Now that the switch port do support NPIV and has the NPIV capability ON, still the connection is showing just a single WWPN number rather than something like below:-

id    N8      Online      FC  F-Port  1 N Port + 2 NPIV public

 

We would want it to show the NPIV public connected to the port.

 

Where exactly are we missing anything.

Hello,

 

Since the enable of NPIV on the port, have you disable/enable the port?

 

Note that:

If the NPIV feature is disabled, the port is toggled if NPIV devices are logged in from that F_Port (a true NPIV port). Otherwise, the firmware considers that port as an F_Port even though the NPIV feature was enabled.

Hi,

 

the line below

 

id    N8      Online      FC  F-Port  1 N Port + 2 NPIV public

 

means that 2 NPIV devices are connected to port.

To display the WWPN, you would need to use the portloginshow CLI, e.g. one example

 

portloginshow 162
