Reenabling the switch fabric and verify operation

You must enable the FC switch fabric and ensure that the switches and devices are operating correctly.

Procedure

  1. Enable the switches: switchCfgPersistentEnable
    If this command is not available, the switch should be in the enabled state after the fastBoot command is issued.
    The following example shows the command issued on FC_switch_A_1:
    FC_switch_A_1:admin> switchCfgPersistentEnable
    The following example shows the command issued on FC_switch_B_1:
    FC_switch_B_1:admin> switchCfgPersistentEnable
  2. Verify that the switches are online and all devices are properly logged in: switchShow
    The following example shows the command issued on FC_switch_A_1:
    FC_switch_A_1:admin> switchShow
    The following example shows the command issued on FC_switch_B_1:
    FC_switch_B_1:admin> switchShow
  3. Run the fmc_dc utility to ensure that the 7-Mode fabric MetroCluster is functioning correctly.
    You can ignore errors related to Traffic Isolation (TI) zoning and trunking.
  4. Repeat the tasks for the second switch fabric.
