AFF A200 Disappearing ports

I have 3 ports missing that I had been able to access prior to today. CIRSAN-01 e0d and CIRSAN-02 e0c and e0d are not longer displaying:

 

Node: CIRSAN-01

e0e       Default      -                down 9000  auto/10    -
e0f       Default      -                down 9000  auto/10    -

Node: CIRSAN-02

e0b       Default      Default          up   9000  auto/10000 healthy
e0e       Default      -                down 9000  auto/10    -
e0f       Default      -                down 9000  auto/10    -
11 entries were displayed.

None of these ports are phyically connected but with them missing I'm getting and error on my default broadcast domain,

 

I was able to do an -up-admin false and -up-admin true command on these ports before they dissapeared as an example, but now get a message "entry doesn't exist" when specifiying those ports on any command.

 

I'm searching for any command and steps to re-add them but haven't had any success with anything I've found.

Re: AFF A200 Disappearing ports

I've seen port ASICs fail a few times, but since this is both controllers and not just a matched pair, it's probably software.

 

Due to the caution needed around troubleshooting, I would say that calling our support center is the right approach to take. Numbers are listed here - https://www.netapp.com/us/contact-us/support.aspx - or you can open a case via support.netapp.com and save time for the initial call.

Re: AFF A200 Disappearing ports

please provide the output of 'ucadmin show' [node shell]

Re: AFF A200 Disappearing ports

The "ucadmin show" showed them as FC ports - they were changed without being noted. I changed them back and took the one in the default domain cluster out of the cluster so I could continue what I was wokring on. Thanks.
