Re: Virtual Fabric Disable Problem...

Eric,

 

it show to me, as you have already configured port in the Virtual Fabric.

 

The problem is, before you can delete the VF, you must FIRST remove/move all the Port from those VF to the Default Logical Switch, otherwise you cannot delete the configured VF.

Re: Virtual Fabric Disable Problem...

Seb is right. There is still a LS 2 in the switch which should be deleted first. Unless you've hit some sort of bug you should be able to do a "setcontext 2" and if that succeeds you know you still have a logical switch with FID 2 even if that one doesn;t have any ports assigned to it.

 

Go back to LS 128 (setcontext 128)

Remove LS 2 (lscfg --delete 2)

Disable VF (fosconfig --disable vf).

 

I've never been able to find a good justification to disable the VF logic in a switch so you may want to enlighten me a bit here. Why do you want to disable this??

 

 

Kind regards,

From FOS Command Reference Manuals, if Port are configured in the VF

 

operands --delete

 

Deletes a logical switch with the specified fabric ID. The specified logical switch
must exist and no ports should be configured on this partition. You must remove
all ports from the logical switch before deleting the logical switch instance. Use the
lscfg --config command to remove the ports.

Re: Virtual Fabric Disable Problem...

Thanks Erwin, you suggestion worked, appreciate your help. 

 

Antonio, yuo mentioned if I had removed all ports from the logical switch and the answer to that is "yes". 

 

But Erwin's steps solved my problem.
