portcfgnondfe in FOS v7.2.x

Hi experts:


I plan to use the new feature portcfgnondfe command to attach LTO-6 drives to Gen5 SAN switch with FOS 7.2 stream.

Would you please tell me the exaxt version that includes this feature.

I know it was picked up at 7.1.2, but I want to be in 7.2.x level.


Thank you, Ichi

I think the command might not be available in v7.2.x.


I also wanted to use it for our LTO5 and LTO6 drives.

But when I try to use the command I get the following message:

rbash: portcfgnondfe: command not found


We are at FOS release v7.2.0d.

Hi Ichi,


the portcfgnondfe exists in FOS v7.2.1b. But I think You should wait until v7.2.1c1 with the ShellShock Bug is released.
