Configuring the FCF

Configuring the FCF

During deployment of a converged data center network, the access network convergence solution is used to protect investments on the existing SAN. The FCF functions as the access switch and connects to SwitchA and storage device Array through its uplink interfaces, and directly connects to ServerA through its downlink interface, as shown in Figure 30-1. ServerA connects to FCFA and FCFB to constitute dual planes, ensuring network reliability.

Figure 30-1  FCF networking

Configure the FCF according to Figure 30-2. On the CE12800, you need to enable hardware zoning. On the CE8800&CE7800&CE6800, you do not need to perform this step.

Configure the DCB. After DCB negotiation is successful, configure the FCF. FCFA is used as an example to describe the FCF configuration.

  1. Create an FCoE interface.

    # Create FCoE-Port 1 and FCoE-Port 2 on FCFA.

    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [~HUAWEI] sysname FCFA
    [*HUAWEI] commit
    [~FCFA] interface fcoe-port 1
    [*FCFA-FCoE-Port1] quit
    [*FCFA] interface fcoe-port 2
    [*FCFA-FCoE-Port2] quit
    [*FCFA] commit
  2. Create an FCF instance.

    # Create an FC instance named fcf1 on FCFA, specify VLAN 2094 as the FCoE VLAN, and add FCoE-Port 1 and FCoE-Port 2 to fcf1.

    [~FCFA] fcoe fcf1 fcf
    [*FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] vlan 2094
    [*FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] member interface fcoe-port 1
    [*FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] member interface fcoe-port 2
    [*FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] quit
    [*FCFA] commit
  3. Configure physical interfaces.

    # Configure 10GE1/0/1 on FCFA to allow VLAN 2094.

    [~FCFA] interface 10ge 1/0/1
    [~FCFA-10GE1/0/1] port link-type trunk
    [*FCFA-10GE1/0/1] port trunk allow-pass vlan 2094

    # Add 10GE1/0/1 on FCFA to FCoE-Port 1.

    [*FCFA-10GE1/0/1] fcoe-port 1
    [*FCFA-10GE1/0/1] quit
    [*FCFA] commit

    # Configure 10GE1/0/2 on FCFA to allow VLAN 2094.

    [~FCFA] interface 10ge 1/0/2
    [~FCFA-10GE1/0/2] port link-type trunk
    [*FCFA-10GE1/0/2] port trunk allow-pass vlan 2094

    # Add 10GE1/0/2 on FCFA to FCoE-Port 2.

    [*FCFA-10GE1/0/2] fcoe-port 2
    [*FCFA-10GE1/0/2] quit
    [*FCFA] commit
  4. Enable hardware zoning. (This step is mandatory on the CE12800 only.)

    # Enable hardware zoning on FCFA.

    [~FCFA] zone hard-zoning enable
    [*FCFA] commit
  5. Configure a zone.

    # Create Zone1 on FCFA and add ServerA and Array to Zone1. Member nodes can be added to a zone based on the WWPN, WWNN, FC_ID, and FCoE interface. The WWPN node is recommended.

    [~FCFA] zone zone1
    [*FCFA-zone-zone1] member wwpn 30:00:00:68:50:40:30:01
    [*FCFA-zone-zone1] member wwpn 30:00:00:68:50:40:30:02
    [*FCFA-zone-zone1] quit
    [*FCFA] commit
  6. Configure and activate a zone set.

    # Create a zone set named Zoneset1 on FCFA and add Zone1 to Zoneset1.

    [~FCFA] zoneset zoneset1
    [*FCFA-zoneset-zoneset1] member zone1
    [*FCFA-zoneset-zoneset1] quit
    [*FCFA] commit

    # Activate Zoneset1 in the FC instance fcf1.

    [~FCFA] fcoe fcf1 fcf
    [~FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] active zoneset zoneset1
    [*FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] quit
    [*FCFA] commit
  7. Verify the configuration.

    # Check registration information of the server and storage device.

    [~FCFA] display fcoe name-server brief
    The Name-Server Information:                                                    
    Interface           FC-ID             WWPN                                      
    FCoE1/0/1           16.00.01          30:00:00:68:50:40:30:02                   
    FCoE1/0/2           16.00.02          30:00:00:68:50:40:30:01
