VIF Bound Physcial Interface Down

Answered Question

Hi Guys!


We are trying to connect FI 6248 (UCSM 2.1.1a) to Brocade 6510 swtich(One FI to one of the two Brocade switches separately). The ports are configured as FC Uplink port and the FI's work in End-host mode. We created the service profile. After associating the SP to one of the blades the two errors occurs immediately:


VIF <number> Bound Physical Interface Down

VIF <number> Bound Physical Interface Down


and this relates to the 2 vHBAs created in SP. Is this normal situation if OS isn't already installed on the host? We can't configure SAN zone from the brocade side because we don't see any WWPNs of the configured vHBAs in the SP. We see only FI's WWPNs(as I think). NPIV mode is enabled from the Brocade side. 


Can someone explain what can cause this problem?

Sergey,


This is expected if there is no OS installed yet, see the possible reasons for the VIF down in this bug:
