I'm setting up a new UCS service profile, and I'm getting the error above. I've created WWPN pools, using the default prefix (one for FI-A, one for FI-B) and assigned them to the vHBA templates accordingly. thoughts?
For any VIC adaptor, where you might create multiple (>1) vhba's, it is not possible to derive this pwwn values from the embedded hardware pwwn !
You have to create pwwn pools for Fabric A and B.
see e.g. https://supportforums.cisco.com/discussion/12259771/wwnn-and-wwpn-pools
This looks ok to me; can you please post a screenshot of the error message, and specify which operation created it ?
I assume you also have created a UUID, nwwn and MAC pool ?
Unsure of nwwn. If you mean WWNN, it is in the screen shot above.
Ther error im getting is on the initial service profile i created.
Configuration error: cannot derive wwpn from virtualized port
When i expand the Vhba's within the service profile, its showing derived, yet on the vhba templates, i have the pool selected.
thanks for trying to help, i do appreciate it :)
I found it.. it appears that the setting within the service profile for the vHBA's was set to derived. Once I set it to the pools there, it finally clered the error. Thanks so very much for the help :)
OK, perfect !
In the service profile creation, you could of course use the vhba template above, which was correct; however, you bypassed this.
