FX8-24 crossport and FCIP routing

Hi Experts,

I am configuring FCIP using FX8-24 blades. FOS is 7.x I am also using xge1 as a cross port.
And I have following questions.
Q> by using xge1 as cross port, VE ports 22-31 will be available for xge0 right?

 

Following is the sequence of commands to assign IP and create tunnels

 

portcfg ipif 7/xge0 create 192.168.1.151 255.255.255.0 1500
portcfg iproute 7/xge0 create 192.167.1.151 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1
portcmd --ping 7/xge0 -s 192.168.1.151 -d 192.167.1.151

portcfg ipif 7/xge1 create 192.168.1.150 255.255.255.0 1500 -x
portcfg iproute 7/xge1 create 192.167.1.150 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 -x
portcmd --ping 7/xge1 -s 192.168.1.150 -d 192.167.1.150
portcmd --ping 7/xge1 -s 192.168.1.150 -d 192.167.1.151 -x

portcfg fciptunnel 7/22 create --remote-ip 192.167.1.151 --local-ip 192.168.1.151 -B 6000000 -c auto
portcfg fcipcircuit 7/22 create 1 --remote-ip 192.167.1.150 --local-ip 192.168.1.150 -B 6000000 -c auto

 

Does it look correct?

 

Q> when I create iproute I am using destination port IP address instead of network address as shown in admin and cli guides

as per admin guide


portcfg iproute 8/xge0 create 1.1.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 192.168.11.250

 

While I am using
portcfg iproute 7/xge0 create 10.26.1.151 255.255.255.0 10.46.1.1

 

Where 10.26.1.151 is the IP address of destination interface

 

Will it work? or does this have to be network ip address as given in brocade guides?

is correct.

 

In 10 Gbps mode, you can also configure VE_Ports 12 through 21 to use port xge0 as a crossport and VE_Ports 22
through 31 to use port xge1 as a crossport.

 

about Tunnle cretae and Ip assign:

 

--->>>portcmd --ping 7/xge1 -s 192.168.1.150 -d 192.167.1.150

 

for portcmd --ping command, when crossport is configure, you have to use the --crossport operand, in example:

 

"portcmd --ping 7/xge1 -s 192.168.1.150 -d 192.167.1.150 --crossport"

 

the same for portcfg -iproute,

 

--->>>portcfg iproute 7/xge0 create 192.167.1.151 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1

 

in example

 

"portcfg iproute 7/xge0 create 192.167.1.151 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 --crossport"
