Issue the specified Fibre Channel ELS request to the specified peer port ID via the specified Fibre Channel port. The request must be one of the following:
flogi- Log in to Fibre Channel fabric
plogi- Log in to Fibre Channel port

You can use the
fcstat command to view the state of Fibre Channel ports and peers.
Fibre Channel ELS requests are generally issued automatically as needed. You should only need to use the
fcels command if you need to debug Fibre Channel problems.
