Networking Requirements

During deployment of a converged data center network, the access network convergence solution is used to protect investments on the existing storage area network (SAN) and NPVA and NPVB are used as the edge switch to expand the network scale, as shown in Figure 2-39. ServerA connects to NPVA and NPVB to constitute dual-plane networking, ensuring network reliability.

Figure 2-39 FCF+NPV Networking
NOTE:
  • The device supports a maximum of 512 FCoE interfaces.

  • The CE7855EI, CE7850EI, CE6850HI, CE6856HI, CE6855HI, CE6851HI, and CE6850U-HI allow a maximum of 4096 VN_Ports to log in; the CE8860EI, CE8850EI, CE6860EI, and CE6850EI allow a maximum of 512 VN_Ports to log in; the CE6810EI allows a maximum of 256 VN_Ports to log in.

  • The device allows a maximum of 32 VN_Ports to be online concurrently in each zone.

Configuration Roadmap

The configuration roadmap is as follows:

  1. Switch physical interfaces on the FCF to Fiber Channel (FC) interfaces.

  2. Switch a physical interface on NPV to an FC interface and create a Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) interface.

  3. On the FCF, create an FCoE forwarder (FCF) instance, specify an FCoE VLAN, and add a Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) interface to the FCF instance.

  4. On the NPV, create an NPort Virtualization (NPV) instance, specify an FCoE VLAN and an NPV VLAN, and add FC and FCoE interfaces to the NPV instance.

  5. On the NPV, add a physical interface to the FCoE interface and FCoE VLAN.

  6. Configure the interface mapping on NPV.

  7. Configure a zone on the FCF and add ServerA and Array to the zone.

  8. Configure and activate a zone set on the FCF.

NOTE:

Configure Data Center Bridging (DCB). After DCB negotiation is successful, configure the FCF and NPV device.

Data Preparation

Configure the physical connections and IP addresses according to the following table.

Procedure

  1. Configure FC interfaces.

    # Switch 10GE1/0/1 and 10GE1/0/2 on FCFA to FC interfaces.

    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [~HUAWEI] sysname FCFA
    [*HUAWEI] commit
    [~FCFA] port mode fc 10ge 1/0/1
    Warning: This port(s)(10GE1/0/1-1/0/4) and all configurations of the current port(s) will be cleared, and switched to fc port(s). Continue?Warning: This operation will cause all the other configurations on the port to be lost. Continue? [Y/N]:y
    [*FCFA] commit

    # Switch 10GE1/0/5 on NPVA to an FC interface.

    <HUAWEI> system-view
