Port number.


Label for the port, if any.


Protocol for the port. Either FC for Fibre Channel or FCoE for Fibre Channel over Ethernet.

Expected SAN/Network

SAN or network to which you want to connect the storage system port.

Best practice: Use the Auto setting. Once cabling is complete, the actual SAN will be set and the expected SAN will be set based on the actual SAN. You must do this because unmanaged direct attach networks are not listed in the expected SAN/network menu.

If you do not want the appliance to manage a port, set the expected network to none.

Actual SAN

SAN or network to which the storage system port is connected.


The menu list displays the configured uplinks.

Port Group

The port group the storage port belongs to, otherwise, the default is Auto, which selects a port group automatically.

You can use port groups to specify a set of storage ports to be used when you attach a volume to a server profile
