A700 40g Breakout to 4x10Gb Ontap Config Question

I'm setting up our A700, and need to figure out how to convert e4e 40g to the e4e-h 10g ports. I have the breakout cabled up between the A700 and the end network switches. Where is the magic setting to make this happen?

Hey Corey,

 

You can convert the ports from 40 GbE to 10 GbE in maintenance mode. The command is

 

*> nicadmin convert –m [ 40G | 10G ] [ port ]

 

So if your 40g card is in slot 4, run

 

*> nicadmin convert -m 10G e4e

 

Converting e4e 40G port to four 10G ports

Halt the system, install/change the cable, and then reboot for conversion to take effect

 

I hope this helps! Let us know if this works for you.

 

Best regards,

Dirk
