BL460 FC ports connected to which uplink port

I'm trying to determine which uplink port a server is using on the VC 16Gb 24-port FC modules. The chassis is managed by OneView. If the chassis wasn't imported in OneView I could've seen in

Virtual Connect -> Hardware -> Interconnect Bays

Any help much appriciated

Re: BL460 FC ports connected to which uplink port

Hi

From OneView GUI it’s not possible to get details about HBA WWPNs logged into switch through VC uplink port.

However from OneView GUI mode you can capture VC uplink port WWPN.

And form Onboard Administrator web console or Onboard Administrator SHOWALL report you can capture Server HBA WWPN.

OA SHOWALL Output:

Later you can check in SAN switch under VC uplink port WWPN which HBA WWPN are logged into the switch. In SAN switch blade server HBA WWPN reflect as NPIV ports.

Please refer SAN switch output for your reference.
