Change 2040/2042 HPE SAN Ports from FC to iSCSI

As I work with these SANs a lot, one of the first things I have to do is change the ports over from the default FC mode to iSCSI mode so they can be connected to the SAN via 10G fiber connections.

Believe it or not this is very tough to find out the exact syntax in the HPE documentation.

Since it is a simple process, I have outlined it below:

1. Connect to the SAN controller via Putty
2. Run this command:  set host-port-mode [FC | iSCSI | FC-and-iSCSI]


  • FC: Sets all ports to FC
  • iSCSI: Sets all ports to iSCSI
  • FC-and-iSCSI: Sets the first two ports to FC and the second two ports to iSCSI

That's all there is to it.  

Good luck!
