Checking AIX HBA link

lsattr -El fscsi. Look for the attach parameter

root@aix:/ # lsattr -El fscsi1
attach none How this adapter is CONNECTED False
dyntrk no Dynamic Tracking of FC Devices True
fc_err_recov delayed_fail FC Fabric Event Error RECOVERY Policy True
scsi_id Adapter SCSI ID False
sw_fc_class 3 FC Class for Fabric True
root@aix:/ # lsattr -El fscsi3
attach al How this adapter is CONNECTED False
dyntrk no Dynamic Tracking of FC Devices True
fc_err_recov delayed_fail FC Fabric Event Error RECOVERY Policy True
scsi_id 0x1 Adapter SCSI ID False
sw_fc_class 3 FC Class for Fabric True

The adapter fcs2 I know that is connected

root@aix:/ # lsattr -El fscsi2
attach switch How this adapter is CONNECTED False
dyntrk no Dynamic Tracking of FC Devices True
fc_err_recov delayed_fail FC Fabric Event Error RECOVERY Policy True
scsi_id 0x2bd00 Adapter SCSI ID False
sw_fc_class 3 FC Class for Fabric True

After plugging the fibre, I ran cfgmgr to recognize the hardware

root@aix:/ # cfgmgr

And runnning again lsattr -El fscsi I see that the attach parameter changed to switch

root@aix:/ # lsattr -El fscsi1
attach switch How this adapter is CONNECTED False
dyntrk no Dynamic Tracking of FC Devices True
fc_err_recov delayed_fail FC Fabric Event Error RECOVERY Policy True
scsi_id 0x14fdc0 Adapter SCSI ID False
sw_fc_class 3 FC Class for Fabric True
root@aix:/ # lsattr -El fscsi3
attach al How this adapter is CONNECTED False
dyntrk no Dynamic Tracking of FC Devices True
fc_err_recov delayed_fail FC Fabric Event Error RECOVERY Policy True
scsi_id 0x1 Adapter SCSI ID False
sw_fc_class 3 FC Class for Fabric True
