    Why do I need a Access Gateway Mode? What is the difference from full-fabric?

    In short form, Access Gateway mode handled the Port as NPIV, and reduced in a Fabric the Number of Domain.

     

    here are some details about AG

    Good for smaller switches (e.g. blade chassis modules) connected to the bigger "core" switches/directors
