[in the DESCRIPTION of t11vfLocallyEnabledOperStatus, page 13]
 
      DESCRIPTION
           "This object is used to report the operational status of
            Virtual Fabric tagging on this Port.

            SET operation   Description
            --------------  -------------------------------------------
            off(1)          Virtual Fabric tagging is disabled on this
                            Port.

            on(2)           Virtual Fabric tagging is enabled on this
                            Port."

It should say:

       DESCRIPTION
           "This object is used to report the operational status of
            Virtual Fabric tagging on this Port.

            Operational-Status Description
            ------------------ -------------------------------------
            off(1)             Virtual Fabric tagging is disabled on
                               this Port.

            on(2)              Virtual Fabric tagging is enabled on
                               this Port."

Notes:

--VERIFIER NOTES--

t11vfLocallyEnabledOperStatus is a read-only object -- which means it
it does not have "SET operation"s. So, the problem is the line in
t11vfLocallyEnabledOperStatus's DESCRIPTION shown above.

[Aside: traditionally, "operational status" is always read-only, as in
ifOperStatus in RFC 2863.]

Section 6 says:

[in the DESCRIPTION of t11vfLocallyEnabledTable, page 12]
 
       DESCRIPTION
           "A table for assigning and reporting operational status of
            locally-enabled Virtual Fabric IDs to Ports.  The set of
            Virtual Fabrics operational on the Port is the bit-wise
            'AND' of the set of locally-enabled VF_IDs of this Port
            and the locally-enabled VF_IDs of the attached Port."

It should say:

       DESCRIPTION
           "A table for reporting operational status of
            locally-enabled Virtual Fabric IDs to Ports.  The set of
            Virtual Fabrics operational on the Port is the bit-wise
            'AND' of the set of locally-enabled VF_IDs of this Port
            and the locally-enabled VF_IDs of the attached Port."

Notes:

--VERIFIER NOTES--

This phrase makes it seem like t11vfLocallyEnabledTable is
read-write and needs to be changed.

The only reaon this table has a RowStatus object (and a StorageType) is
so that a management application can limit the rows in the table to be
only those which it is interested in. It doesn't allow the operational
status to be changed. Therefore the words "assigning and" need to be
removed, so that the definition is as above.
