Configuring an FCF Instance

Configuring an FCF Instance


On the traditional Fiber Channel (FC) network, all FC nodes are interconnected through the fabric. FC nodes belonging to a fabric have the same attributes. To control Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) traffic forwarding, FCoE uses FC instances because FCoE carries storage area network (SAN) traffic over the Ethernet. An FC instance defines fabric attributes such as the FCoE VLAN.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run fcoe fc-instance-name fcf

    An FCoE forwarder (FCF) instance is created, and the FCF instance view is displayed.

    By default, no FCF instance is configured. The device supports a maximum of 32 FC instances.


    An FCF instance name is case sensitive. For example, "fcf1" and "FCF1" are different FCF instances.

  3. Add FC or FCoE interfaces to the FCF instance.

    • Run the member interface fc fc-port-id1 [ to fc-port-id2 ] command to add FC interfaces to the FCF instance.

      By default, no FC interface is added to an FCF instance.

    • Run the member interface fcoe-port fcoe-port1 [ to fcoe-port2 ] command to add FCoE interfaces to the FCF instance.

      By default, no FCoE interface is added to an FCF instance.

  4. Run vlan vlan-id

    An FCoE VLAN is added to the FCF instance.

    By default, no FCoE VLAN is configured.

    An FCoE VLAN belongs to only one FCF instance.

  5. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
