Answer

Check supportShow on the switch to verify switchBeacon is set to off. The switchShow output will indicate whether or not the beacon is enabled:

SWITCH03> switchshow                                           
switchName:                 SWITCH03
switchType:           34.0                                                                                                     
switchState:  Online 
switchMode:               Native                                            
switchRole:         Subordinate                               
switchDomain:         6                                                
switchId:    fffc06                                    
switchWwn:            10:00:00:04:1e:04:b2:fg
                 
zoning:                  OFF                                          
switchBeacon:       OFF           <- switch's beaconing state (on/off)

The following commands can be used to toggle switch beaconing on and off.

switchBeacon 1 -turns beaconing on
switchBeacon 0 -turns beaconing off
