Mar 29, 2017
- Cisco Unified Computing System
Known Affected Releases
Symptom: If a user is re-purposing a unified port from Fiber channel mode to ethernet mode, and the port is connected to a chassis, user may experience network disruption on some vEthernet interfaces. Conditions: This problem happens because when a unified port is converted from a Fiber channel mode to ethernet mode, it automatically gets enabled and become an uplink port. Since this port is an uplink ports, vnics can re-pin itself to this newly connected uplink port. If this port is connected to a chassis instead of an upstream switch, the traffic would be dropped for all vnics that are pinned to that port.
