Configuring a Role for an Interface

Configuring a Role for an Interface


On a traditional Fiber Channel (FC) network, initiators and targets of storage area network (SAN) traffic are explicitly specified. Because traditional Ethernet does not define the traffic transmission direction, roles of FIP snooping bridge (FSB) interfaces must be defined during network planning.
Figure 2-33 Roles of FSB interfaces
Roles of FSB interfaces are as follows:
  • VNP_Port: FCoE switch port connected to an FCF
  • ENode_Facing port: FCoE switch port connected to a server

Before configuring a role for an interface, add the interface to an FCoE VLAN.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run interface interface-type interface-number

    The Ethernet interface view is displayed.

  3. Run port link-type { trunk | hybrid }

    The link type of the interface is configured.

    By default, the link type of an interface is access.

  4. Run port trunk allow-pass vlan { { vlan-id1 [ to vlan-id2 ] }&<1-10> | all }

    Or run port hybrid tagged vlan { { vlan-id1 [ to vlan-id2 ] }&<1-10> | all }

    The interface is added to an FCoE VLAN.

  5. Run fcoe role vnp

    The interface is configured as a VNP_Port.

    By default, an Ethernet interface is an ENode_Facing port.

  6. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
