Virtual Connect 3.17: Can VC Fibre Channel uplinks be added "on the fly"?

Terri was looking for some info:

 

*********************

 

Hello all,

 

VC 3.17 with 8GB VCFC 24-port and all blades logging in.

Customer added an additional uplink port. VCM let him do this, but then hung.

 

1. Can the VC SAN Fabric be modified "on-the-fly"?

2. Will the VC Server Profiles automatically reflect the changes to the VC SAN Fabric/Fabrics?

 

******************

Q1) Yes the VC SAN Fabric can be modified "on the fly"?

Q2) The number of uplinks in the fabric is not directly reflected in the server profiles. The new uplink could be used the next time a server logs into the fabric, or if you manually redistribute the logins in VCM.

 

******************

 

Other help for Terri? Have you successfully done profile changes?
