Ficon port addressing for MDS 9506

Hi,

I'm configuring a MDS 9506 as a mirror of a MDS 9513 because my customer is preparing a data center migration.

I've found that 9506 has a ficon address limit of 153, but I need to address ports up to address 230.

Do you know if there is possible to increase this limit?

Thanks

Regards

Re: Ficon port addressing for MDS 9506

Hello Rafael,

On Cisco MDS 9506, there are Implement and unimplement ports

Implemented ports: ports assigned by default up to 153

Unimplemented ports: 154 through 253, this can be assigned on demand

use the command:

switch# show ficon port-numbers assign slot xx

switch# show ficon port-numbers

switch# conf t

switch(config)# ficon slot XX assign port-numbers 153 - 230  < ---  depending available ports

Hope this help

Thanks Vu Fhan for your answer.

I tried to do this that you say but the problem is that this port-numers are out of the assignable range.

switch(config)# ficon slot 4 assign port-numbers ?

 

  <0-153>           Enter port numbers

  <0x0-0xffffffff>  Enter port numbers

switch(config)# ficon slot 4 assign port-number 145,120,77,121,126,83,151,144,154

                                                                                            ^

Invalid value/range at '^' marker.

Regards

Rafael
