A300 Preconfigured CNA port Operational down

NetappNewbie-Roy

Hi Netapp Team,

 

I have a new A300 pre-configured with 8 FC LIFs and having 4 CNA port and 4 native FC port. I have 2 brocade FC switches. The native FC ports are both admin up and operationally up. While the CNA ports are admin up but operationally down. I then change the CNA port to FC target port, and reboot the A300. However, the port are admin down and operationally down. How can I fix it? Any command to make it right? Thanks for advice.

Original port config:

Update!

 

I modify the network interface to admin up. But the operation status is still down.

Did you fix this issue. I too have same issue. Admin seems to be Up and operational status is down.

ShivaR

Reseating the network port has worked for me.
