Configuring FCR with Virtual Fabrics Question

Hi Guys,

I am George from Hungary, new to this forum and I am happy to be here.

I am confogiruing two B5100 and my aim is to use FCR with multiple Virtual Fabric.

Example:

B5100_01 Switch

FID 100 (base switch)

FID 110 (Switch with storage ports)

B5100_02 Switch

FID 100 (base switch)

FID 120 (Switch with host ports)

B5100_01 and B5100_02 is connected with 2 ISLs in FID100

All of the FID-s have uniquie domain ID.

My aim is to create a route between FID 110 and 120.I try to congfigure FCR with fcrconfigure command, but it is not allowed in VF mode. After I disable it, I try to set the EX ports, but still it doesn't work .

I red Fabric OS guide, but still not moving forward.

Please if somebody has got some kind of tets configuration, please send me or help me.

Thank you,

Regards,

Gyorgy

Re: Configuring FCR with Virtual Fabrics Question

With Virtual Fabrics you have to use the "lscfg --change <FID> -newfid <NEWFID>" command.

You also have to allow XISL usage on the other virtual switches if you're not using direct ISL's between FID 120 on both switches.

Hello Erwin,

Thank you, today my isse has been solved, the problem was with the cabling, cause I haven't connected the LS to the rputer configured with EX/E port.

Now I heard that in FOS 7 you don't have to cable within the swirtch to connect an LS to an FCR enabled base switch, I hope soon it will be in GA

Thanks again,

Regards,

György
