Verifying port configuration (MetroCluster FC configurations only)
Contributors Download PDF of this page
You must set the environmental variables on the node and then power it off to prepare it for MetroCluster configuration.
This procedure is performed with the replacement controller modules in Maintenance mode.
The steps to check configuration of ports is needed only on systems in which FC or CNA ports are used in initiator mode.
In Maintenance mode, enter the following command to restore the FC port configuration:
ucadmin modify -m fc -t initiatoradapter_name
If you only want to use one of a port pair in the initiator configuration, enter a precise adapter name.
Take one of the following actions, depending on your configuration:
If the FC port configuration is… Then…
The same for both ports
ywhen prompted by the system, because modifying one port in a port pair also modifies the other port.
nwhen prompted by the system.
Enter the following command to restore the FC port configuration:
ucadmin modify -m fc -t initiator|targetadapter_name
Exit Maintenance mode by entering the following command:
After you issue the command, wait until the system stops at the LOADER prompt.
Boot the node back into Maintenance mode for the configuration changes to take effect:
Verify the values of the variables by entering the following command:
Exit Maintenance mode and display the LOADER prompt:
