FCIP Configuration

Hi, Does some one has all the steps to do FCIP configuration,

I need to do it on Brocade 7500 router on both sites and on edge sides we have Brocade 4900 switches. Both sites are connected to each other on 45 Mbps Link.Brocade 4900 has Storage port connected to it, which will be used for replication (mirrorView)

It will be good if some one can share the required information as from 4900 to to 7500 connection (Not just simple ISL) but LSAN and VE port configuration and how about link testing between both 7500 routers.

Thanks

Re: FCIP Configuration

hi,

Beginnig is pretty easy. If you want to isolate fabrics (recommended) you just need to connect both 7500 with IP network, assign IP on port, create tunnel (be carefull to setup VE port). This is my configuration.
