Configuring an FCF

Pre-configuration Tasks

On a converged network, an FCoE forwarder (FCF) connects a traditional storage area network (SAN) to a local area network (LAN). An FCF can forward Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) packets and encapsulate or decapsulate FCoE packets.

Before configuring an FC FCF, complete the following task:

  • Configure a link layer protocol so that interfaces at both ends of a link are Up.

Before configuring an FCoE FCF, complete the following tasks:

  • Configure a link layer protocol so that interfaces at both ends of a link are Up.

  • Configure Data Center Bridging (DCB). After DCB negotiation is successful, configure the FCoE forwarder (FCF).
