Enabling a controller allows a previously disabled path, HBA controller or array port to accept I/O again. This operation succeeds only if the path, controller or array port is accessible to the host, and I/O can be performed on it. When connecting Active/Passive disk arrays, the enable operation results in failback of I/O to the primary path. The enable operation can also be used to allow I/O to the controllers on a system board that was previously detached.
