Status of one F-Port on Brocade DCX switch changed from F-Port to LD F-Port. Earlier it was configured as F-Port.
There was no configuration changes on the fabric recently . Find below the port details :-

Could anyone let me know the reason for this ?
portcfglongdistance has been issued?
The usual explanation for that is that LD mode was configured at some point in time and left that way. Then, somebody needed a port and that was free and thus used...
