Reenabling the switch fabric and verify operation

Download PDF of this page

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

Steps
  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.
