making Persisten Disaled ports enabled

Hi,

When I try enabling persistently disabled port (which is offline, port type is U-port)portcfgpersistentenable fails.

How to overcome this?

Thnaks,

Re: making Persisten Disaled ports enabled

Hello,

Which switch is this ?

I'm thinking that you might not have any licenses available if it's a switch with DPOD licenses.

If you check in Port Admin from WebTools you can see the license count.

Re: making Persisten Disaled ports enabled

Hi,

Usually i just disable DPOD when i have license for all ports.

But thats another thing.

Did you check the other thread.

Did you try inserting a SFP (or is it one of the internal ports?)

Thanks Neils,

I'm remotely connected to the switch,after I used "switchshow" those ports with persistent disable mode are also showing "No_Sync".

Re: making Persisten Disaled ports enabled

Hello,

its a Blade SAN Switch. The ports will change their status to online if a blade server with FC-Mezzanine Cards is inserted.
All servers without this card leave the port offline and disabled.
