Faulty FA port in Dell EMC Symmetrix Array
At times, we may have to deal with a faulty FA port in a Symmetrix array and want to find out the Servers affected by this loss of path. In fact, we are interested to know the list of port groups in which this particular faulty port is a member and related Masking View information. We also like to know the number of ports in each port groups to make sure that multi-pathing is configured on array level. I found following commands useful to dig these details.
Assuming 1D:04 is the faulty port, below command list the names of all port groups where it is included.
symaccess -sid 1234 list -type port -dirport 1d:04
Below command provides few more information. This will display the total number of ports in each port groups and also the number of masking views in which each of the port group is a member.
symaccess -sid 1234 list -type port -dirport 1d:04 -detail
We can find the name of Masking Views by using below command.
symaccess -sid 1234 list -type port -dirport 1d:04 -v
