Procedure to change FCIP tunnel/circuit bandwidth on 7800

Hello Guys,


Greeting...

We have an existing setup of FCIP tunnel/circuit running at 34 Mbps.

We just had our WAN links upgraded and hence would like to increase the tunnel/circuit bandwidth to 500 Mbps.

Can you please let me know the procedure/steps to change the speed of the circuit?


Switch:admin> portshow fciptunnel all -c
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tunnel Circuit OpStatus Flags Uptime TxMBps RxMBps ConnCnt CommRt Met
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
16 - Up ------- 22h18m 0.01 33.69 358 - -
16 0 ge3 Up ---4--s 22h18m 0.01 33.69 358 340/340 0
17 - InProg m------ 0s 0.00 0.00 0 - -
17 0 ge1 InProg ---4--s 0s 0.00 0.00 0 100/100 0
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

And just wondering if this could be done online? Or would we have to shut down the tunnel/circuit to change the bandwidth?

 

Thanks in advance,
Altaf

Is suggested to disable single circuit before do maintenance.

 

portcfg fcipcircuit -operands- "modify"

 

for details refer FCIP admin guide

Hello TechHelp24,

 

Thank you for your response. 

Can you please confirm if the below steps/commands will do? Please let me know if I am missing something.


Step 1:
On Switch A - portdisable 16

Step 2:
On Switch B - portdisable 16

Step 3:
On Switch A - portcfg fciptunnel 16 modify remote_ip_address local_ip_address 500000

Step 4:
On Switch B - portcfg fciptunnel 16 modify remote_ip_address local_ip_address 500000

Step 5:
On Switch A - portenable 16

Step 6:
On Switch B - portenable 16


Regards,
Altaf

that work, but i suggest the command

 

portcfg fcipcircuit ( is applicable in a multi-circuit tunnel ) to avoid downtime.

Re: Procedure to change FCIP tunnel/circuit bandwidth on 7800

Thank you.

 

We have just one circuit in this tunnel - So I guess we are good there...

 

And I just found another alternate command for changing the link speed.

 

"portcfg fciptunnel 16 modify -b 500000 -B 500000"

 

So is specifying the ip address field mandatory?

Can you please explain the difference of both the command and which one should I go for? Thanks.

 

 

Regards,

Altaf
