Example for Configuring an FCF (FC and FCoE Interfaces)

Example for Configuring an FCF (FC and FCoE Interfaces)

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). FCF functions as the access switch and connects to SwitchA and storage device Array through its uplink interfaces, and directly connects to ServerA through its downlink interface, as shown in Figure 2-37. ServerA connects to FCFA and FCFB to constitute dual-plane networking, ensuring network reliability.

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. Create a Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) interface.

  2. Create a Fiber Channel (FC) instance, specify an FCoE VLAN, and add an FCoE interface to the FC instance.

  3. Add a physical interface to the FCoE interface and FCoE VLAN.

  4. Switch the physical interface to the FC interface and add the FC interface to the FC instance.

  5. Configure a zone and add ServerA and Array to the zone.

  6. Configure and activate a zone set.

NOTE:

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

Data Preparation

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

Procedure

  1. Create an FCoE interface.

    # Create FCoE-Port 1 on FCFA.

    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [~HUAWEI] sysname FCFA
    [*HUAWEI] commit
    [~FCFA] interface fcoe-port 1
    [*FCFA-FCoE-Port1] quit
    [*FCFA] commit
    

  2. Create an FC instance.

    # Create an FC instance named fcf1 on FCFA, specify VLAN 2094 as the FCoE VLAN, and add FCoE-Port 1 to the FC instance fcf1.

    [~FCFA] fcoe fcf1 fcf
    [*FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] vlan 2094
    [*FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] member interface fcoe-port 1
    [*FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] quit
    [*FCFA] commit

  3. Configure a physical interface.

    # Configure 10GE1/0/1 on FCFA to allow VLAN 2094.

    [~FCFA] interface 10ge 1/0/1
    [~FCFA-10GE1/0/1] port link-type trunk
    [*FCFA-10GE1/0/1] port trunk allow-pass vlan 2094

    # Add 10GE1/0/1 on FCFA to FCoE-Port 1.

    [*FCFA-10GE1/0/1] fcoe-port 1
    [*FCFA-10GE1/0/1] quit
    [*FCFA] commit

  4. Configure FC interfaces.

    # Before configuring an FC interface, connect an FC optical module to the interface. If the LINK indicator is steady green, the interface is Up.

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

    [~FCFA] port mode fc 10ge 1/0/5
    Warning: This port(s)(10GE1/0/5-1/0/8) 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

    # Add FC1/0/5 on FCFA to the FC instance fcf1.

    [*FCFA] fcoe fcf1 fcf
    [*FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] member interface fc 1/0/5
    [*FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] quit
    [*FCFA] commit

  5. Configure a zone.

    # Create zone1 on FCFA and add ServerA and Array to zone1. You can add member nodes to a zone using the WWPN, WWNN, FC_ID, and FC/FCoE interface. The WWPN mode is recommended.

    [~FCFA] zone zone1
    [*FCFA-zone-zone1] member wwpn 30:00:00:68:50:40:30:01
    [*FCFA-zone-zone1] member wwpn 30:00:00:68:50:40:30:02
    [*FCFA-zone-zone1] quit
    [*FCFA] commit

  6. Configure and activate a zone set.

    # Create a zone set named zoneset1 on FCFA and add Zone1 to zoneset1.

    [~FCFA] zoneset zoneset1
    [*FCFA-zoneset-zoneset1] member zone1
    [*FCFA-zoneset-zoneset1] quit
    [*FCFA] commit

    # Activate zoneset1 in the FC instance fcf1 on FCFA.

    [~FCFA] fcoe fcf1 fcf
    [~FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] active zoneset zoneset1
    [*FCFA-fcoe-fcf-fcf1] quit
    [*FCFA] commit

  7. Verify the configuration.

    # Check registration information of the server and storage device.

    [~FCFA] display fcoe name-server brief
    The Name-Server Information:
