I am trying to setup two DCX 4S with Fx8-24 blades for FCIP traffic. Got a couple of questions about the switch setup. The chassis are VF enabled so the only swithes are default switches with FID128. I enabled the FCR using fosconfig --enable fcr on both the switches. When I run the switchshow command, I see that the FC Router shows up as OFF. Do I need to have this ON for it to work with FCIP and if so, how would I enable this. Also, will the FID of 128 allow both the default switches to merge the fabrics over VR ports ? My main concern is about the FC Router services which I assume needs to be on for FCIP to work but I am not sure how I can get it to turn on. I had thought that enabling FCR would turn this on too but so far, it show off. Here is what I have.
FID128:admin> fosconfig --show
FC Routing service: enabled
iSCSI service: Service not supported on this Platform
iSNS client service: Service not supported on this Platform
Virtual Fabric: enabled
FC Router: OFF
Allow XISL Use: OFF

FC Router is set to/as OFF, when no other EDGE FC-FC Routing Switch is connect and no Routing - EX_Port - is formed.
And I assuming you have at the moment nothing configured, correct ?
2th, if you want to use the FX8-24 for FCIP you need a FCIP/FC License, and create a Tunnel/Circuit.
all this have nothing to do basically with FC-FC Router
