Issue Description

VIS product take control of NetApp storage. We find that one port of NetApp cannot interconnect VIS, and the port path cannot be seen on VIS.

Alarm Information


Handling Process

1. Make FC port offline.
fas3020c-b> fcadmin config

Adapter Type State Status
0a initiator UNDEFINED online
0b initiator UNDEFINED offline
0c target CONFIGURED offline
0d initiator CONFIGURED offline
2. fcadmin config -t target 0d
configure Oc as initiator;
3. reboot

Root Cause

There are two modes on NetApp main board FC port: target and initiator. If the port mode is initiator, it cannot interconnect VIS. Becaue VIS is front line host toNetApp, VIS interconnect port is initiator, so NetApp port mode must be target.
