If communication with the CLI is disrupted when using an out-of-band cable connection, communication
can sometimes be restored by disconnecting and reattaching the mini-USB CLI cable as described in
and
Figure 30

Change the CNC port mode

This subsection applies to S3200/S2200 CNC models only. While the USB cable is still connected and
the terminal emulator session remains active, perform the following steps to change the CNC port mode
from the default setting (FC), to either iSCSI or FC-and-iSCSI used in combination.
When using FC SFPs and iSCSI SFPs in combination (applies to S3200 only), host ports 0 and 1 are set to
FC (either both 16 Gbits/s or both 8 Gbit/s), and host ports 2 and 3 must be set to iSCSI (either both
10GbE or both 1 Gbit/s).
Set CNC port mode to iSCSI
To set the CNC port mode for use with iSCSI SFPs, run the following command at the command prompt:
set host-port-mode iSCSI
The command notifies you that it will change host port configuration, stop I/O, and restart both controllers.
When asked if you want to continue, enter y to change the host port mode to use iSCSI SFPs.
Once the set host-port-mode command completes, it will notify you that the specified system host
port mode was set, and that the command completed successfully.

Set CNC port mode to FC and iSCSI
To set the CNC port mode for use with FC SFPs and iSCSI SFPs in combination (applies to S3200 only),
run the following command at the command prompt:
set host-port-mode FC-and-iSCSI
The command notifies you that it will change host port configuration, stop I/O, and restart both controllers.
When asked if you want to continue, enter y to change the host port mode to use FC and iSCSI SFPs.
Once the set host-port-mode command completes, it will notify you that the specified system host
port mode was set, and that the command completed successfully.
Continue with
Configure the system
NOTE:
• After using either of the CLI command sequences shown above, you may see events stating that the
SFPs installed are not compatible with the protocol set for the host ports. The new host port mode
setting will be synchronized with the qualified SFP option once the controller modules restart.
• See Appendix
SFP transceivers within the CNC ports.
After changing the CNC port mode, you can invoke the SMC and use the Configuration Wizard to initially
configure the system, or change system configuration settings as described in the Storage Manager Guide
and
Basic
