Deleting TI zoning and configuring IOD settings

Download PDF of this page

You must delete the existing TI zoning and reconfigure in-order-delivery (IOD) settings on the switch fabric.

  1. Identify the TI zones that are configured on the fabric:

    zone –-show

    The following example shows the zone FCVI_TI_FAB_2.

    Brocade-6510:admin> zone --show
       Defined TI zone configuration:
       TI Zone Name:   FCVI_TI_FAB_2
       Port List:      1,0; 1,3; 2,0; 2,3
       configured Status: Activated / Failover-Disabled
       Enabled Status: Activated / Failover-Disabled
  2. Delete the TI zones:

    zone -–delete zone-name

    The following example shows the deletion of zone FCVI_TI_FAB_2.

    Brocade-6510:admin> zone --delete FCVI_TI_FAB_2
  3. Confirm that the zones have been deleted:

    zone –-show

    The output should be similar to the following:

    Brocade-6510:admin> zone -–show
    
        Defined TI zone configuration:
        no TI zone configuration defined
  4. Save the configuration:

    cfgsave

  5. Enable in-order-delivery:

    iodset

  6. Select Advanced Performance Tuning (APT) policy 1, the Port Based Routing Policy:

    aptpolicy 1

  7. Disable Dynamic Load Sharing (DLS):

    dlsreset

  8. Verify the IOD settings using the following commands:

    iodshow

    aptpolicy

    dlsshow

    The output should be similar to the following:

    Brocade-6510:admin> iodshow
    
    IOD is set
    
    Brocade-6510:admin> aptpolicy
     Current Policy: 1
    
     3 : Default Policy
     1: Port Based Routing Policy
     2: Device Based Routing Policy (FICON support only)
     3: Exchange Based Routing Policy
    Brocade-6510:admin> dlsshow
    
    DLS is not set
