Configuring the Switch
If you have configured port binding and click Activate, an error message may
display if the format for the WWN entered in the Bound WWN column is not
valid (not in xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx format) or if you enter a nickname that
has not been configured through the Product or Fabric Manager.
5. To set the data speed for the port, click in the Speed column for the port, and select
1 Gb/sec, 2 Gb/sec, or Negotiate. Selecting Negotiate allows the port and attached
device to negotiate the data rate.
6. Use the scroll bar on the right side of the Configure Ports dialog box table to
display additional ports that you want to configure.
7. Activate changes and close the dialog box by clicking Activate.
8. If you are finished configuring the switch, back up the configuration data. For
more information, refer to
Configure Port Addresses (S/390 mode only)
Use this procedure to create and activate port address configurations.
This read-only field lists the port's address.
This user-defined name is assigned to the address. Up to 24 alphanumeric
characters are allowed, including spaces, hyphens and underscores.
If the box is checked, the port is blocked. Blocked ports continuously transmit
offline sequences (OLS), but cannot communicate to an attached device. If the
box is not checked, the port is unblocked.
Port connection array
This yellow area of the dialog box is a matrix of port addresses that is used to
configure connections between port addressees. Each port in the switch has a
corresponding port address which equals the physical port number plus four.
Therefore, the address for port 0 is 4 (0+4).
