Newly Created NPIV Ports are Not Listed Sequentially in "fcinfo hba-port" Output.

(Doc ID 2320949.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 06, 2017

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 11 11/11 to 11.3 [Release 11.0]
Qlogic FC HBA - Version All Versions and later
Emulex FC HBA - Version All Versions and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Newly created NPIV ports are not listed sequentially in fcinfo output.

Any subsequent virtual ports created will be listed as virtual port1 and not in sequential manner.
This is very misleading because its very difficult to remember and compare the WWN.

Basically virtual Ports numbers listed in 'fcinfo hba-port' and 'ldm ls-hba -t primary''s are not matching that creates confusion to Customer.
