Re: Create FC fabric between 200E and 300E

If you have removed lossless DLS  you have to reset the ISL so that the switchs try to merge again.

 

Once done, take a look at the output in switchshow for those ports to see the message provided.

 

If you still see the following message,

 15  15   010f00   id    N8   In_Sync     FC  Disabled (SW Security Violation)

 

you may need to follow the recommendations about the SCC made by Dion in a previous post.

Re: Create FC fabric between 200E and 300E

I got it working. There are several things to be done. It worked in my case.

 

  1. Run the following commands towards SanSW01 using telnet:
  • switchdisable
  • cfgclear
  • cfgsave
  • configdefault

 2. Log on to SanSw01 and check that the configuration has been reset (the IP information will not be reset)

 

3. Connect SanSw01 and SanSW06

 

4. Enable and disable the Access Gateway Mode in the SWITCH section on SanSw01

 

 5. Deactivate Insistent Domain ID Mode in CONFIGURE section. You must disable the switch first to deactivate it. This should be done on both san switches

 

 6. In the SECURITY section - this has to be done on both san switches.

    1. ACL – delete all policies
    2. FWCP – all Entities should have CONSISTENTCY BEHAVIOR as ABSENT

 7. In the PORT ADMINISTRATION section, the port used for the fabric should have PERSISTENT ENABLED activated - This has to be done on both san switches.

 

8. Check that SanSW01 has received the configuration from SanSW06

 

Hope this will be helpfull for other as well.

 

Thank you all.
