How do unconfigure an ISL Connection??


I am in need of unconfiguring ISL Connections.  I have 2 fabrics, in each fabric I have 1 6505 and 1 G620. Ports 0/4 are being used on the 6505 SAN and Ports 19/23 are used on the G620 SAN.  I would like to remove the 6505 from the fabric.  What steps would I take to accomplish this?


Thanks so much for any info that can be provided..

Re: How do unconfigure an ISL Connection??

The command is "portcfgeport 0/4 0" will disable the port 0/4 from becoming an E port(ISL). To reverse this use the same command with a 1 at the end to enable the port as an E port again. 


See the FOS command reference for full explanation.
