I have a host running with a brocade HBA BR-825 two ports.
HBA driver version 188.8.131.52.
Host is a SAN Boot redhat 5 u3 os using Brocade HBA dud image.
When doing portdisable/portenable operation on switch, after several iterations, found the path lost.
system log(/var/log/messages) showed the port had been online
BFA BFAL_AEN_PORT_ONLINE: Base port online: WWN = 10:00:00:05:1e:8c:67:2c
But multipath software showed the path had been down.
After checking the port state on switch, it became G-port.
Does anyone know why and how to solve the problem, many thanks.

Please provide porterrshow and fabriclog -s - I can try to determine a possible reason. Also do a sfpshow #portnumber
Did you check the HBA settings??
If you already have it please attach the supportshow.
