Anybody here experience with Fabric ID conflict?, in our customer have 3 sites DC and we configure for local site using ISL Long distanec via DWDM, and for Remote site we using FCIP with VEx-VE configuration.
A ---- ISLDWDM---- B ;BB FID 13
A ---- FCIP VE-VEx ----- C ; BB FID 13
B ---- FCIP VE-VEx ----- C ; BB FID 13
A & B Local Site
C Remote Site
and we setting the FID from C to A using FID 21
and setting FID C to B using FID 21
and now the connection between C to A disabled due to Fabric ID Conflict. Can anybody help me how to solve this?
My question is :
1. Should i change the BB FID on C site to another value and make it different with A and B site?

as C is your BB-Fabric, connections to Edge Fabrics have to have unique Fabric ID's.
So configure for Example FID 21 to Fabric A and FID 22 to Fabric B. Then it will work.

The current config between A and B Site is One Fabric and merge using ISL LD via DWDM, thats why the BB FID
on A and B site using the same value, and we already tried differentiate the FID to A and B site from C site and the
port is disabled because the Fabric ID oversubscription.

There are 2 solutions.
1) You should use VE-VE conection instead of VE-VEX. A, B and C are merged.
2) Use VE-VEX conection and change FID on Remote Site. Fabric C is isolated.
