Issuing a LIP command from a port

You can issue a Loop Initialization Primitive command from a port that is on a Fibre Channel loop.

Caution: Issuing a LIP command from a port resets the topology for the entire Fibre Channel loop on which the port is located and will impacts other ports on the loop.

  1. On the main menu, select Storage Systems > Ports.
  2. Select a port that is on the Fibre Channel loop that you want to initialize, and then select Issue LIP on the Actions menu.

    Tip: By default, the action is disabled and does not appear on the Ports Actions menu. The action can be enabled and added to the Actions menu using the Advanced port option on the Preferences panel in the Global Settings dialog.

  3. Follow the instructions on the dialog that opens.
