    Hello,

     

    by default any port can become F-Port or E-Port, it depends on what you connect. Host and Storage does log in as F-Port, ISLs will be E-Ports.

    With portcfg commands you can restirict which port types are allowed to login on specific if desired.

    Hi,

     

    default Port-Type is an U-Port (Universal Port).
