Port type will not change to "new" when configuring transport layer for RCFC

Good afternoon all,

I am working in a remote lab with two 3PAR's, a 7200 and a 8200 connected through a two 3000B, one for odd ports and one for even, for training purposes.

I am trying to configure the even onboard FC ports for RCFC through the CLI. When I issue the "controlport config rcfc <n:s:p>" command it accepts it but still says "free" under type when it should say "new". showport -par shows that the connmode is changed to rcfc. However, it does not come up as an rcfc port when calling showrctransport. When i try to initialize them i get an error that there are no rcfc devices on that port.

I have them zoned correctly, port 0:1:2 from 7k sees only 0:0:2 on 8k, and same for node 1 on each.

7k 3par OS 3.2.1 MU3

8k 3par OS 3.2.2 MU2

Your help is much appreciated, thank you.
