(Optional) Specifying an Interface for Transmitting FCoE Traffic


As shown in Figure 2-29, SwitchA and SwitchB constitute a cluster switch system (CSS) in a super virtual fabric (SVF) system. SwitchA and SwitchB function as parent switches to connect to multiple leaf switches, and are configured with the FCoE forwarder (FCF) or NPort Virtualization (NPV) instance. When the link in Figure 2-29 fails, uplink Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) traffic on SwitchC is forwarded by SwitchB to SwitchA. Generally, the stack cable bandwidth between SwitchA and SwitchB is low and cannot transmit heavy traffic.


If a Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) interface is bound to an Eth-Trunk, you only need to configure FCoE on any Eth-Trunk member interface.

As shown in Figure 2-30, an interface is specified on SwitchA to transmit FCoE traffic. When the link in Figure 2-30 fails, the fabric link is not recalculated and uplink FCoE traffic on SwitchC is switched to SwitchD.

  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run interface interface-type interface-number

    The interface view is displayed.

  3. Run fcoe fabric-port

    The interface is specified to transmit FCoE traffic.

    By default, no interface is specified to transmit FCoE traffic in an SVF system.

  4. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
