First of all, thank you for taking the time to read this.....
We are trying to add an IBM P770 to our Cisco MDS 9000 Fabric Switch. We've set the port to Fx mode, trunking off, rate-mode is shared. For some reason the port remains in the "initializing" state. The only way that we could get it to come up, is by putting the port into ST state. Even when the port does come up, in ST mode, when you look at the Flogi database, the port doesn't appear. Unfortunately, our support isn't through SmartNet, so we have to open support with another vendor. Unfortunately, they are as stumped as we are. We have read many online blogs, but nothing seems to help us. None of us are Storage Network experts, so hopefully someone can help. Again, thanks for taking the time to read this!
