Dell 8428-K / Brocade 8000

Hello -


Have have a Dell blade chassis with an 8428-K switch which is kind of a stripped down Brocade 8000 in chassis module form.


We had been running it in a converged fasion, but we would like to convert it to a pure Ethernet configuration.


Does anybody have any sample configs for what we should do to make it Ethernet only?

The 10G Port on Brocade 8000 can be used as traditional Ethernet Port, there is no conversion required.


However if any CEE = Converged Enhanced Ethernet config is activated, the port's cannot be used for traditional Ethernet.


If any you must remove the config.

Thanks for the reply.  I guess what i am asking is "how do i get rid of the CEE, or FCoE part of the config?"  Specifically - pretent you're talking to a 5th grader.  :)


it is indeed working now, but i'd like to configure it for just ethernet and get rid of the rest of the junk.
