FAS 2552 fc adapter in cluster mode

I am setting up a two node FAS 2552 cluster mode.

However when i try to make a new vserver , it tells me i have no fcp adapters available. I have all the license availables.

below is what i see when in ucadmin

I am not sure I understand how "making vserver" is related to FCP adapters. Please paste exact command and its output.

Hi if I understand it correctly , you want to enable fcp into ure vserver ... So based on your previous output I can see that all you UTA ports are 10GbE. First you will need to convert them to FC Ports using:
ucadmin modify -node nodename -port 0c -mode fc -type target

Then you will be able to create your fcp service

CNA target in Ethernet mode can perfectly work for FCP LIFs using FCoE, which is why more information what OP actually wants is needed. Also changing mode from CNA to FC requires hardware change, so is more involved than just a single command.
