Virtual switch IP assignment

I have added IP  addresses to my virtual switches, but the problem is that when I try to telnet or use SAN Health to any  of new IPs I am still connected to FID 128

What is the proper way of configuring the switch/SAN Health to allow connectivity to all virtual switches?

switch1:FID128:admin>  fabricshow

Switch ID   Worldwide  Name           Enet IP Addr    FC IP Addr      Name

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1: fffc01  10:00:00:05:1e:8c:6c:fc 10.10.10.62     0.0.0.0         >"switch1"

switch1:FID128:admin>  setcontext 10

switch1:FID10:admin>  fabricshow

Switch ID   Worldwide  Name           Enet IP Addr    FC IP Addr      Name

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1: fffc01  10:00:00:05:1e:8c:6c:fd 10.10.10.62     10.10.10.52     >"switch1"

switch1:FID10:admin>  setcontext 20

switch1:FID20:admin>  fabricshow

Switch ID   Worldwide  Name           Enet IP Addr    FC IP Addr      Name

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1: fffc01  10:00:00:05:1e:8c:6c:fe 10.10.10.62     10.10.10.53     >"switch1"

SWITCH

Ethernet IP Address:  10.10.10.62

Ethernet Subnetmask:  255.255.255.0

Gateway IP Address:  10.10.10.1

DHCP:  Off

IPFC address for  virtual fabric ID 10: 10.10.10.52/24

IPFC address for  virtual fabric ID 20: 10.10.10.53/24

IPFC address for  virtual fabric ID 30: 10.10.10.54/24

From what I can see I  have different fabrics with a logical switch in each, is such configuration be  supported by SAN Health

Re: Virtual switch IP assignment

1 utf-8

The user "admin" that you are using is set to use FID 128.  You will need to create an admin account for each FID that is set up.  i.e. AdminFID10 and then set the home FID for that user to 10.

Then when SH logs in to any LS in FID10 it should be set to use this account.

Managing LS and FIDs is not just about IP address it's also the user context that you log in under.  Going in as just admin will give you the equivalent of the base switch context and as SAN Health only sees what IP it's pointed at and whatever the user context displays, that's what SH is going to return.

It works the same in Admin Domains.

Hope this helps.
