Port Grouping policy modes

Port Grouping policy modes help manage VF_Port and N_Port operation when ports go offline or when all N_Ports in a group are not connected to the same FC fabric.

There are two Port Grouping policy modes that you can enable using Network OS commands:
  • Login Balancing (LB) is enabled by default when you create a port group.
  • Modified Managed Fabric Name Monitoring (M-MFNM) mode is enabled with LB mode. You cannot disable MFNM mode for a port group unless you disable LB mode.
