FC port conversion to CNA not showing up online
2 weeks ago
I have converted a qlogic cna 8324 (8362) from FC to CNA but i see the port status showing ofline.
May i know what is the configuration needs to be done on the switch side ? To support the CNA type.

SFP on the Netapp side showing it supports 4,8 and 16GB speeds (Last screenshot in my post) . Whereas my switch side is a 10Gb SFP If this is the case i cannot use it because the switch end SFP is 10G ?
When you use a CNA, you are working with Ethernet speed (10GBPS). The speed on the SFP of 4-8-16 GBPS is FC speed. So my guess is that you have the wrong sfp in there.... Do you want to do FCoE with your Setup ?
These are the SFP+ you want.
