Example for Configuring FIP Snooping

Networking Requirements

During deployment of a converged data center network, the access network convergence solution is used to protect investments in the existing SAN. The FC forwarder (FCF) functions only as the aggregation device because of its high cost. SwitchA functions as the access switch. SwitchA directly connects to Ethernet switch SwitchB and FCF through uplink interfaces, and directly connects to servers through its downlink interfaces, as shown in Figure 10-49.

SAN traffic needs to be correctly forwarded on SwitchA.

Configuration Roadmap
To meet user requirements, configure FIP snooping on SwitchA to control FCoE traffic forwarding. The configuration roadmap is as follows:
  1. Configure an FC instance and specify an FCoE VLAN to enable servers, SwitchA, and FCF to interconnect through the FCoE VLAN.
  2. Configure 10GE1/17/3 as a VNP-port, and 10GE1/17/1 and 10GE1/17/2 as ENode-facing ports.

You need to add the FCF interface directly connected to SwitchA to the FCoE VLAN.


  1. Configure an FC instance.

    # Configure an FC instance FSB on SwitchA and specify FCoE VLAN 2094 in this instance.

    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [~HUAWEI] sysname SwitchA
    [*HUAWEI] commit
    [~SwitchA] fcoe FSB
    [*SwitchA-fcoe-FSB] vlan 2094
    [*SwitchA-fcoe-FSB] commit
    [~SwitchA-fcoe-FSB] quit

  2. Configure port roles.

    # Configure 10GE1/17/3 on SwitchA to allow VLAN 2094. The configurations of 10GE1/17/1 and 10GE1/17/2 are similar to the configuration of 0GE1/17/3, and are not mentioned here.

    [~SwitchA] interface 10ge 1/17/3
    [~SwitchA-10GE1/17/3] port link-type trunk
    [*SwitchA-10GE1/17/3] port trunk allow-pass vlan 2094

    # Configure 10GE1/17/3 on SwitchA as the VNP-port.

    [*SwitchA-10GE1/17/3] fcoe role vnp
    [*SwitchA-10GE1/17/3] commit
    [~SwitchA-10GE1/17/3] quit

    An interface is an ENode-facing port by default, so the configurations of 10GE1/17/1 and 10GE1/17/2 are not mentioned.

  3. Verify the configuration.

    # Check the FCoE VLAN configuration.

    [~SwitchA] display fcoe vlan                                      
    VLAN     Interface           Interface Role 
    2094     10GE1/17/1           ENode-Facing   
             10GE1/17/2           ENode-Facing   
             10GE1/17/3           VNP-Port       

    # Check FCoE session information.

    Run the display fcoe session command to check FCoE session information. If FIP snooping is successfully configured, FCoE session information is generated.

    [~SwitchA] display fcoe session                                  
    FCoE Session Information:                                             
    FCoE MAC        ENode MAC       ENode Interface   VLAN                
    FCID            FCF MAC         FCF Interface     Keep Alive Packet(s)
    0efc-0010-06ab  0010-9400-0009  10GE1/17/1         2094                
    0x1006ab        0002-0304-0506  10GE1/17/3         5                   
    0efc-0010-06ac  0010-9400-000a  10GE1/17/2         2094                
    0x1006ac        0002-0304-0506  10GE1/17/3         5
