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.
