Configuring switches for FCoE

You must configure your switches for FCoE before your FC service can run over the existing Ethernet infrastructure.

Before you begin

Procedure

  1. Use your switch documentation to configure your switches for FCoE.
  2. Use the dcb show command to verify that the DCB settings for each node in the cluster have been correctly configured.
    run -node node1 -command dcb show
    DCB settings are configured on the switch. Consult your switch documentation if the settings are incorrect.
  3. Use the fcp adapter show command to verify that the FCoE login is working when the FC target port online status is true.
    cluster1::> fcp adapter show -fields node,adapter,status,state,speed,fabric-established,physical-protocol
    If the FC target port online status is false, consult your switch documentation.
