Virtual Connect & VC-FC Uplink Ports Connection question

Bohus had a question regarding what information he was seeing for VC-FC connections:

 

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

 

Hi Team,

 

I have encountered this finding: when looking at VC “show all * ” output, in the section “FABRIC INFORMATION” there is for each Fabric additional External Uplink Ports Info, including VC-FC port Uplink WWN and “Connected To” WWN, which I would expect should be the WWN of neighbour SAN switch where this uplink is physically connected.

 

Example:

External Uplink Ports

===========================================================================

ID        Status  Speed  Port WWN                 Connected To

===========================================================================

enc0:4:1  OK      8Gb    20:11:00:11:0A:00:AD:59  10:00:00:05:33:EF:52:C6

 

When I compare wwn in the column “Connected To” with wwn of the switch where this uplink port is physically connected it does not match.

In the column “Connected To” I can see wwn of the Fabric Principal switch in that SAN Fabric.

Is it expected behaviour ?

 

Thanks for clarification.

Input from Vincent:

Yes, it is expected, extract from the VC User Guide:

 

Connected To:           WWN of the principal switch on the SAN fabric that this port is connected to on the other end
