What are some reasons why a GID_PN request is being rejected during a fiber channel device "coming up"?


GID_PN = Get Port ID, port name. 

It is a request coming from a fibre channel (FC) initiator and so contains the World Wide Port Name of the target it is trying to open a transaction with.  If this request is being rejected it might be either:

  • the target device hasn't logged into the fabric and so the fabric will not know about it and will send a RJT (reject); or
  • the device isn't zoned properly.
