Re: Ports persistent disabled on a new san switch

having admin rights on the switch should be able to do it.. not sure in your case.

anyways.. update once the issue is solved.

That command will work on FCIP routers like 7500/7500E.

In chassis based SW, some configurations have to be done on chassi's OBA. The chassis vendors know it well.

Re: Ports persistent disabled on a new san switch

In newer san-BLADE-switches, you can not enable a persitstent disabled switch-port, until:

The adjacent blade-mezzanine-hba is up and running.

That means powered on AND set active (either scan for boot LUNs or driven by OS.)

As you can see in the switchshow, E-Ports are enabled as well as other running HBAs.

Hope this helps.

Re: Ports persistent disabled on a new san switch

So it is clear that you have to contact ur SW vendor and they can do the configuration as needed. I had mentioned it before also that it is not easy for SAN admins to trouble shoot the chassis based products

Thank you GK. "# portcfgpersistentenable portnumber" works for me.
