7.4.6. Changing Attributes of a Virtual FC Adapter

A virtual FC adapter has the following attributes:

$ lpar help chfc
   lpar [-h <hmc>] [-m <ms>] [-p <profile>] chfc [-r] [-R] [-v] <lpar> <slot> [<attributes> ...]

 Valid attributes for profile only:
   wwpns - 2 comma-separated WWPNs
   is_required - adapter is required for LPAR activation


Currently there are only the two attributes wwpns and is_required. Both attributes cannot be changed dynamically. A change is only possible in the profile. A change has to be made with the command “lpar chfc” (change virtual FC adapter), using the option “-p” and a profile name.
