The following uses a Brocade switch as an example to explain how to configure switches.

Querying the Switch Model and Version

  1. Log in to the Brocade switch from a web page.

    1. On the web browser, enter the IP address of the Brocade switch and press Enter.
    2. In the Web Tools login dialog box displayed, enter the account and password.

      The default account and password are admin and password.

    Web Tools works properly only when Java is installed on the host. Java 1.6 or later is recommended.

  2. On the switch management page that is displayed, click Switch Information.

    Figure 5-2 displays example information.

    Figure 5-2 Switch information

    Major parameters are described as follows:

    • Fabric OS version indicates the switch version. The interoperability between switches and storage systems varies with the switch version. Use only switches with verified interoperability.
    • Type is a decimal consisting of an integer and a decimal fraction. The integer indicates the switch model and the decimal fraction indicates the switch template version. You only need to pay attention to the switch model. Table 5-1 describes switch model mapping.
    • Ethernet IPv4 indicates the switch IP address.
    • Effective Configuration indicates the currently effective configurations. This parameter is critical to subsequent zone configurations. In this example, the currently effective configuration is ss.

Configuring Zones

Zone configuration is important for Fibre Channel switches. The configurations differ with the switch vendor, model, and version. For details, refer to the configuration guide specific to the switch used in your layout. The following uses the Brocade 6510 switch as an example to explain the zone configuration procedure.

  1. Log in to the Brocade switch on a web browser.

    1. On the web browser, enter the IP address of the Brocade switch and press Enter.

      The Web Tools switch login dialog box is displayed.

    2. Enter the account and password (admin and password by default) to log in.

  2. Check the port status on the switch.

    In normal conditions, port indicators on the switch are steady green after the corresponding ports have been connected to hosts and storage arrays using optical fibers. The example illustrated in Figure 5-3 uses ports 0, 1, 4, and 5.

    Figure 5-3 Port status

  3. Go to the Zone Admin page.

    Choose Configure > Zone Admin from the main menu of Web Tools.

    Figure 5-4 Zone Admin page

  4. Check whether the switch has identified hosts and storage systems.

    On the Zone Admin page, click the Zone tab. In Member Selection List, check whether all related ports have been identified, as shown in Figure 5-5.

    Figure 5-5 Identified ports

    In this example, the hosts use ports 0 and 1, while the storage systems use ports 4 and 5. The display indicates that the switch has correctly identified the devices connected by the four ports.

  5. Create zones.

    On the Zone tab page, click New Zone and enter a name (Zone001 in this example). Add port 0 (connecting to port P0 of a host) and port 4 (connecting to controller A of a storage system) to this zone, as shown in Figure 5-6.

    Figure 5-6 Creating a zone

    Use the same method to create Zone002 to Zone004. Add ports 1 and 5 to Zone0002, ports 0 and 5 to Zone003, and ports 1 and 4 to Zone004.

  6. Add the new zones to the configuration file and activate them.

    On the Switch View tab page, identify the effective configuration file, as shown in Figure 5-7.

    Figure 5-7 Effective configuration file

    On the Zone Admin page, click the Zone Config tab. In the Name drop-down list, choose the effective configuration file New_config.

    In Member Selection List, select Zone001 to Zone004 and add them to the configuration file.

    Click Save Config to save the configuration and then click Enable Config for the configuration to take effect.

    Figure 5-8 shows the configuration on the GUI.

    Figure 5-8 Adding zones to the configuration file

  7. Verify that the configuration has taken effect.

    On the Name Server tab page, verify that the ports have been added to the zones and the zones have taken effect (marked * in the upper right corner), as shown in Figure 5-9.
