fci.adapter.nvram.invalid

Severity

ALERT

Description

This message occurs when ONTAP® software cannot read the NVRAM content of a Fibre Channel adapter. This might cause ONTAP to load an incorrect driver, which could cause the adapter not to work as intended. In addition, the World Wide Node Name (WWNN) and the World Wide Port Name (WWPN) will be incorrect and temporary ones will be assigned. This might cause fabric zoning not to work correctly and might cause problems with anything that depends on consistent WWNNs and WWPNs.

Corrective Action

Reboot the appliance. If the problem still exists, replace the adapter.

Syslog Message

Cannot read NVRAM content of Fibre Channel adapter %s.

Parameters

adapterName (STRING): Name of the associated Fibre Channel host bus adapter.
