How can I change the port mode of a Fibre Channel port on the VTL servers?

Solution
Product and version: VTL6000 V100R003

The VTL6000 server has two port modes: P2P and LOOP. Set the port mode to P2P if the VTL6000 server is connected to a backup server through switches, and set the port mode to LOOP if the VTL6000 server is directly connected to a backup server.

1.  Log in to the VTL6000 server using a Secure Shell (SSH) tool.

    The default IP address is 192.168.10.1, user name root, and password Admin@storage.

2.  On the command-line interface (CLI), run the vi /usr/local/vtl/etc/fshba.conf command.

3.  Press i to enter the edit mode and reset connection_option-hba.

     The value 1 indicates P2P, and 0 indicates LOOP.

4.  Enter :wq ! to save the setting and exit the edit mode.

5.  Run the service network restart command to restart the VTL6000 server.
