Can't able to create a new VC profile

Hello All,
We need to create a server profile on the VC (with VC assigned addressing). But when we try to create the profile, the error message #1 appears on the first screen.
When we continue to create the profile with server factory default, the error message #2 appears. The screen shots are also attached.
But the external-manager is not available if you see from the command line output.

Here are the details:

Product Name: HP Virtual Connect Manager
Firmware Version: 2.10
Firmware Date: 2009-04-17T03:54:28Z


Error messages:

1. Warning! The VC Domain profiles are externally controlled. MAC & WWN addresses have been overridden with Server Factory Defaults.
2. The VCM GUI is under the control of external manager, hence profile can not be created.

Some Command line outputs:

->show external-manager
No external manager exists

->show domain

->add profile Linuxblade
ERROR: Operation not allowed : Current MAC and WWN pool settings does not allow
creation of profiles

Also If we add the network or storage address, it shows the following error message :

->add enet-connection LinuxBlade AddressType=Vc-Defined
ERROR: Invalid property value (AddressType) : Valid values include:
Factory-Default,User-Defined

->add fc-connection LinuxBlade Fabric=SAN_3 AddressType=Vc-Defined
ERROR: Invalid property value (AddressType) : Valid values include:
Factory-Default,User-Defined

Is there anything wrong in the configuration we did?

Please advise.

Thanks,

Re: Can't able to create a new VC profile

Is there a VCEM (Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager) in use ? If yes, You can't do configuration changes from VCM. You have to do it from VCEM.
