NPIV Port Lost After A Host Reboot

(Doc ID 1949862.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 09, 2014

Applies to:

Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 11 to 11.1 [Release 11.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On a Solaris 11 server with NPIV enabled, after a standard reboot ( init 6 or shutdown ), the first
NPIV port of each card is lost on the configuration.

Before the reboot, three NPIV ports were configured per physical HBA port.

A reboot with reconfiguration ( boot -r ) gets the missing ports back.
