Convert NetApp Ports from FC to CNA

March 11, 2020 Jordansphere NetApp

Problem

I wanted to convert two FC ports to CNA (10Gb eth) mode on a Netapp AFF-300. The ports in question are 0e and 0f. 

aff-300-1

Steps

The following will work for FAS units as well.

2) Disable relevant Interfaces on Node 2

network fcp adapter modify -node sannapp02-02 -adapter 0e -status-admin down
network fcp adapter modify -node sannapp02-02 -adapter 0f -status-admin down

 

3) Change Mode 

system node hardware unified-connect modify -node sannapp02-02 -adapter 0e -mode cna

You will get the following option:

Warning: Mode on adapter 0e and also adapter 0f will be changed to cna.
Do you want to continue? {y|n}: y

Any changes will take effect after rebooting the system. Use the "system node reboot" command to reboot.

3) Reboot Node 2

system node reboot -node sannapp02-02

4)  Enable interfaces on Node 2

network fcp adapter modify -node sannapp02-02 -adapter 0e -status-admin up
network fcp adapter modify -node sannapp02-02 -adapter 0f -status-admin up

 

Repeat the steps above with Node 1
