    Details: (FCVI Interconnect might be down. For fabric configurations, use
    "storage switch add" to start monitoring the switches. Then run "storage switch
    show -port" to verify that the status of the used port is "online", and run
    "storage switch show -san-config" to verify that the fabric configuration
