    How I can get Information about FibreChannelData on VIOS

    Gerhard Knop

      In the "Config Object Dictionary" I found the Server Object "BMC_IBM_VirtualSystemsEnabler.BMC_IBM_Cloud_Fibre_Channel":

      But I couldn't found the corresponding data in the life-browse in bladelogic of our VIO-Servers. I need this information for example to deside which FC-adapter is connected to a fabric and how many ports (aports) are free for each FC-adapter.

       

      How can I see this data in the baldelogic console? Is there an blcli-command to get this data?

          Hi,

           

          We currently do not display the information like which FC-adapter is connected to a fabric and how many ports (aports) are free for each FC-adapter. However there is one blcli which is available since 8.2.x which will list few details. The blcli is as follows:-

           

          Blcli -v <name of profile> -r  <Role> Virtualization listVirtualEntitiesByEntityManagerServerNameAndEntityType <Name of the frame>  ManagedSystemFiberChannelHBAPorts

           

          This blcli will list down the details in form “VIO Server::Storage Location”.

           

          Thanks,

            Hi,

             

             

             

            thank You for this hint. I tried this command, but it is only the half the way. I got only the list of HBA’s e.g.:

             

             

             

            VIO Server::Storage Location

            VIO_Prod_82::VIO_Prod_82:fcs4

            but I really need the parameters like the VIO command lsnports give:

             

             

             

            name             physloc                        fabric tports aports swwpns  awwpns

            Best Regards,
