MDS FC Port mode for UCS connectivity

Answered Question
May 22nd, 2012

Hi,

A little question on admin mode of the MDS switch port which is connected to a UCS Fabric Interconnect.

The switch is a MDS 9509 running SAN OS v3.3, we have enabled NPIV on the MDS switch. Currently the port's admin mode is 'auto' and its operational mode is 'F'.

Therefore is it safe to change the admin mode to 'F' or is it better to keep 'auto' as it is.

Cheers,

Kisanka

I have this problem too.

You can leave it set to auto, F mode is the correct operational mode for UCS FIs.

Thanks Jeramy. Since the final operational mode is F, is it safe to administratively set the mode to 'F'
