Is the port on the UCS FI native FC ?

is the port on the UCS FI in VSAN 102

is the UCS FI in FC End host mode

Has the FC port on the UCS FI a FC SFP ?

Is the MDS configured with NPIV ?

PS.

Is this the same problem as

@Walter Dey,

 

   I seem to be running into this issue on a brand new UCS 6332 with Nexus 5672 (7.1(0)N1(1a)).

 

This new UCS has a OUI of 00:3a:9c

 

Do you know which Nexus version supports this new OUI? 

 

I am able to bring up the ports , but not as part of a SAN PC.

There is a bug from November -  https://bst.cloudapps.cisco.com/bugsearch/bug/CSCvn39155

However it doesn't have a fixed release.

Hi,

Sometimes we have the same problem and almost every time the problem is not in "our side" (switch/port) almost always the problem is a problem with port of the hba or fiber cabling. If checking the hba's in the other side and fiber cabling doesn't work I would check the gbic's/sfp in switch side.
