Environment: IBM Blade H chassis with Brocade 8470 69Y1909
Fabos Version 6.3.1_cee
Blade Slot 3: HS22 Blade with Brocade CFFH adapter 81Y1650 firmware and boot code 3.0.0 UEFI settings set to default values.
Blade Slot 4: HS22 Blade with QLogic CFFH adapter 42C1830 firmware and boot code 5.03.05 UEFI settings set to default values.
According to the IBM / Brocade Installation guide (https://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/myportal/docdisplay?lndocid=MIGR-5088152) the only configuration needed, to get CEE from the host ports to bridge the to Fibre Channel switch, is to enable the host facing port for FCOE. The rest of the switch configuration is "fabric switch as usual"...
Display Current State
Enable CEE Priorities
(Defaults from factory)
sw28#sho cee maps
Enable CEE on Host port on ports 3 and 4
interface InTengigabitEthernet 0/4
Review VLAN with CEE enabled
(This seems to be a set option and can NOT be changed from factory: VLAN 1002 with CEE profile called "default")
Display Fibre Fabric
Display Local WWPN on switch
1) Why when review the name server do I not see host WWPN showing up in the switch?
2) Where is the binding of VLAN 1002 to the FC external ports (External : 30-23 Fiber Ports) defined?
3) Why on this switch can you not build a new CEE porfile (forces only 'default") and bind to a user defined VLAN?
Below shows in BIOS on two different CNA Adapter types, scanning the Fabric which should then show the devices up in the local name server listings:
Any ideas, or others with working systems that can post their configurations / notes would be appreciated.
