NPIV capability disabled for ISL ports

    Hello,

    I know from "best practices" the NPIV capability should be disabled for the SAN ports used as ISL:
    portcfgnpivport --disable [slot/]port
    Can somebody tell me if this is a real good practice and, if yes, why? What is in the behind of this?

    thank you.
