Modifying a Fibre Channel Port

Modifying a Fibre Channel Port

When the networking mode between a storage device and an application server changes, modify the settings of Fibre Channel ports to ensure proper communication between them.

Context

Note the following before modifying Fibre Channel ports:

  • If a storage device connects to an application server through a Fibre Channel port, ensure that the rate of the Fibre Channel port on the storage device is the same as that of the peer host bus adapter (HBA) port on the application server. Otherwise, communication between the storage device and the application server may fail.
  • If two storage devices connect to each other through Fibre Channel ports, ensure that the rates of the Fibre Channel ports on both the storage devices are the same. Otherwise, communication between the storage devices may fail.
  • Because modifying the Fibre Channel ports interrupts communication between a storage device and an application server or between storage devices, do not modify any Fibre Channel port settings when there are services running on the storage devices.

Procedure

  1. Choose System.
  2. Click the controller enclosure where the Fibre Channel port resides.
  3. Click to switch to the rear view.
  4. Click the Fibre Channel port whose information you want to modify.

    The FC Port dialog box is displayed.

  5. Click Modify.

    NOTE:

    You can click Properties to modify the parameters of the Fibre Channel port.

  6. In Configured Rate (Gbit/s), select a data transfer rate for the Fibre Channel port.

    • The rate and mode of the Fibre Channel port on a storage system must be consistent with those of the peer Fibre Channel HBA port on the application server. Otherwise, communication between the storage system and the application server may fail.
    • The rate and mode of the Fibre Channel ports on two storage systems that are connected to each other must be consistent. Otherwise, communication between the storage devices may fail.

    Available rates of a Fibre Channel port are 2 Gbit/s, 4 Gbit/s, 8 Gbit/s, 16 Gbit/s, 32 Gbit/s, and Autonegotiation. Select a value after obtaining the rate of the peer Fibre Channel port.

    NOTE:
    • If the maximum rate of the Fibre Channel port is 4 Gbit/s, you can select 2 Gbit/s or 4 Gbit/s.
    • If the maximum rate of the Fibre Channel port is 8 Gbit/s, you can select 2 Gbit/s, 4 Gbit/s, or 8 Gbit/s.
    • If the maximum rate of the Fibre Channel port is 16 Gbit/s, you can select 4 Gbit/s, 8 Gbit/s, or 16 Gbit/s.
    • If the maximum rate of the Fibre Channel port is 32 Gbit/s, you can select 8 Gbit/s, 16 Gbit/s, or 32 Gbit/s.
    • If you select Autonegotiation, the rate of the Fibre Channel port is adaptive to that of the peer Fibre Channel port. If the port rate fails to match with that of the peer, change the port rate to another value.

  7. Confirm the Fibre Channel port modification.

    1. Click Apply.

      A security alert dialog box is displayed.

    2. Confirm the information in the dialog box and select I have read and understand the consequences associated with performing this operation.
    3. Click OK.

      The Success dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation is successful.

    4. Click OK.
