Re: DCX Installation / Configuration best practices.

FID = Fabric ID, is available since FOS 5.x also long time before the DCX exist.

for details see please the Command Reference Manuals.

Re: DCX Installation / Configuration best practices.

You have Virtualfabric enabled on the DCX.

You have no FC Routing enabled

You are connected to the default switch with the Fabric ID 128 which is default if VF is enabel.

The default switch can not use XISL.

If you are not planning to use Virtualfabric run the command fosconfig --disable vf

after that the DCX will reboot.

Your M48 (Brocade 48000) is not VF capable and this is the reason why some information are not present on the M48.

I hope this helps,

If you need further information, please let me know

mobility,

--->>> TechHelp needs to change his name to TechNoHelp.

Sure, coming tomorrow back and you find a NEW name.

--->>>Can you at least post a link to a document? Now, that would be helpful.

No, i cannot that because is not necessary to upload here some DOC.

The doc your need, just go to in "documentation" here in the community and select Download

For a definition of "Download" in some case they are unable to use any such Buttons.... please see in WikiPedia at www.wikipedia.com

Another question is, are they able to use this Community ?
