  • Virtual machines cannot log in.

  • In the example above, the LIF and port have logged into the fabric, but FC4 is not enabled. The entry for the LIF should show FC4s:FCP .

Example:

N  010001;      3;20:00:00:a0:98:12:34:56;20:04:00:a0:98:12:34:56; na

    Permanent Port Name: 50:0a:09:81:12:34:56:78
