Usage Guidelines

  • Once the command is run, UltraPath will not choose this path to deliver I/O.
  • Only T series V100R005 or later storage systems using Fibre Channel networks support this command.
  • If a controller module is disabled by running the set tpgstate command, you cannot run the set pathstate command to change the status of the controller's path.
  • When you replace an HBA, run the set pathstate -p path-id -s disable command to disable the designated physical path. UltraPath will switch I/Os smoothly to other physical paths.
  • When the HBA is replaced, run the set pathstate -p path-id -s enable command to enable the physical path mentioned earlier.


Enable the physical path whose ID is 0.

~ # esxcli upadm set pathstate -p 0 -s enable
