Issue/Introduction

  • This article provides steps to perform a Fabric Login (FLOGI) reset to a Native Fibre Channel (FC) or Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) adapter on ESXi 5.1 and later.
  • VM running with Raw Device Mapping (RDM) stopped after reboot.


Environment

VMware vSphere ESXi 6.7
VMware vSphere ESXi 5.5
VMware vSphere ESXi 7.0
VMware vSphere ESXi 8.0
VMware vSphere ESXi 6.5
VMware vSphere ESXi 6.0
VMware vSphere ESXi 5.1

Resolution

To send the Fabric Login reset from the console:
  1. Open the console or SSH to the ESXi host. For more information, see Using Tech Support Mode in ESXi 4.1, ESXi 5.x and 6.0 (1017910).
  2. From an SSH session or command line, interface to the ESXi host:
    • For FC, run the command:

      # esxcli storage san fc reset -A vmhbaX
       
    • For FCoE, run the command:

      # esxcli storage san fcoe reset -A vmhbaX

      Where vmhbaX is the adapter on which you are performing the LIP reset.
