Can't add uplink port to network on virtual connect

I created a network on a virtual connect domain with 4 modules, stacking and redundancy.
My problem is that I can't connect it to an uplink port. The pulldown menu lists the ports as connected, but won't assign it to my network.

->show network
=======================================================================
Name Status Shared VLAN ID Native Private Preferred
Uplink Set VLAN Speed
=======================================================================
VLAN80 OK -- -- -- -- Disabled Disabled Auto

->

->show stackinglink
Connection Status : OK
Redundancy Status : OK

===========================================
Link Speed Connected From Connected To
===========================================
1 10Gb enc0:1:X0 enc0:2:X0
2 10Gb enc0:1:X1 enc0:5:X1
3 10Gb enc0:2:X1 enc0:6:X1
4 10Gb enc0:5:X0 enc0:6:X0


->show uplinkport
================================================================
ID Enclosure Status Type Speed Used By
================================================================
enc0:1:1 OA-001CC4152887 Linked (1Gb) RJ45 Auto -- --
enc0:6:1 OA-001CC4152887 Linked (1Gb) RJ45 Auto -- --

Via lldp the switch at the other end sees the VC connect swithces.


gscm290013# show lldp info remote

The uplink is conected to an untagged HP switch port in vlan80.

-> set uplinkport enc0:1:1 Network=VLAN80 Role=Primary
SUCCESS: Port modified : enc0:1:1


Even though the command says "success" it doesn't really assign the port to the network? It doesn't work via the GUI or command line.

Jack:

Are you using IE8? IE8 doesn't work properly with the Virtual Connect Manager GUI and the symptom you describe is one of the problems. Try a different version of IE or use Firefox.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll give that a go.

Yes, using firefox instead of ie8 worked. I don't know why using the CLI didn't work for me. I'll pursue that answer when I get some time.
