fcp adapter show connection missing information


Hey everyone,

I ran into a weird issue where in some of my clusters (running ontap 9.1P9/P12 most of them) the command "fcp adapter show -fields switch-port" (or node run -node * sysconfig -v [slot])

doesn't show information regarding the port the fc adapter is connected to at the san switch side (cisco mds for that matter)

I couldn't find a connection between versions of the san switches or anything else.

has anyone ran into the same issue? somebody solved that?



Forgot to mention that I tried to run "system node run -node *n1* priv set diag; fcp reset <adapter>" and it didn't help.


Re: fcp adapter show connection missing information


DId the switch enabled  cdp to  show CDP information for all Cisco products connected to the switch..?

Re: fcp adapter show connection missing information


Did you try cmd  "fcp show adapter -v"


It should display something like below with switch port information
