Working With NPIV Ports

You can configure NPIV for non-virtualized environments by using the fcadm command.

The fcinfo and fcadm status commands are available to determine the status of NPIV ports, regardless of whether the ports are created from fcadm. The commands also report the relationship between the physical port and the virtual ports hosted on that port.

Other Fibre Channel commands, such as luxadm and cfgadm, report NPIV information, although no distinction is made between virtual and physical ports.
