In response to: Reading VLANs from the SEA Adapter

Comment from: [Member]

5 stars

Update on the tcpdump command.

Some switches do not return much data with the vlan and ether dst 01:00:0c:cc:cc:cd settings. I have found the following tcpdump command to be more reliable.

# tcpdump -i en26 -xx ether multicast

Chris K.

In your explanation of min, max, & max_min the last 2 are exactly the same.

Should it be:
min = the minimum values are used
max = the maximum values are used
max_min = the maximum AND minimum values are used

Thanks for clarification.

We are using 16Gb direct attached (direct connection onl support 16Gb). I think it is OK with 8Gb connection from fabric.

We are using the same EN0B card direct connect to SAN. But failed to connect to. I thought you are using the fabric to 16b FC SAN. Could you share the AIX and SAN OS Model?

Thanks

Hi Pete,

You may need the extra \" quoting around you vnic_adapters.
Can you try this:

chsyscfg -m 8408-44E-xxxxx -r prof -i "lpar_name=test11,name=try2, \"vnic_adapters+=slot_num=2:is_required=0:backing_devices=sriov/btsbwviou2/3/2/1/6.0/50,sriov/btsbwviou2/3/2/1/6.0/50\""

Trying to add this

vnic_adapters+=slot_num=2:is_required=1:backing_devices=sriov/btsbwviou2/3/2/1/6.0/50,sriov/btsbwviou2/3/2/1/6.0/50

But I cant't seem to get around formatting and or the shell

chsyscfg -m 8408-44E-xxxxx -r prof -i "lpar_name=test11,name=try2, vnic_adapters+=slot_num=2:is_required=0:backing_devices=sriov/btsbwviou2/3/2/1/6.0/50,sriov/btsbwviou2/3/2/1/6.0/50"
