Usage Guidelines

Before you use this command, you must enable Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) N-Port Virtualizer (NPV) on the switch by using the feature fcoe-npv command.

You cannot disable FKA messages if the switch is in N-Port Virtualizer (NPV) mode.


Note Make sure the switch is not in NPV mode. Use the switchport command to remove the NPV configuration on the switch.


This command requires the FCoE NPV license.

Examples
