    My switch is used to connect both FCP and FICON connections, which I have two seperate zones for. We have new Tape Drives that are giving us issues. A couple of problems I've encountered:

     

    1. 3 Ports are 'stuck' as G Ports. Since it is in FMS Mode, when I try to Portdisable, it disables a port 4:

    2. These connections are all FCP and FICON, no TCPIP at all. With that said, is there a function to remember paths?  Meaning if a device connects and establishes with the host, will the path be 'remembered' by its WWN number?  

     

     

     

    I hate to reboot the switch (I have never had to since I deployed them into production), but if its neccessary to get my ports out of G Port state or 'forget' any paths, I would not hesitate to do so. Has the community encountered these issues before and what worked for them?

     

    Thanks,
