Nexus 5k FC Storage

将5k类具有UP功能的NEXUS变成FC口的方法如下: 将E1/45-48变成FC口,此命令执行完需要重启! slot 1 port 45-48 type fc 定义VSAN,和接口指定为ACCESS的VSAN号 vsan database vsan 1000 vsan 1000 interface fc1/48 定义VSAN的VLAN vlan 1000 fcoe vsan 1000 name fcoe_test 定义FC口为F口,因为对面连接FI,FI的VHBA对外是一个开启NPV功能的FC交换机,而5K是FI和STORAGE间的中转,所以需要5K开启NPIV来帮助解答NPV数据,在这种关系中,5k对外的口是F,FI上的口是NP。 interface fc1/48 switchport mode F FEATURE FCOE如果不开启,重启后的NEXUS就看不到新配的FC口,配置文件都在,只是看不到口,需要FCOE license。 5596Top(config)# feature fcoe FC license checked out successfully fc_plugin extracted successfully FC plugin loaded successfully FCoE manager enabled successfully FC enabled on all modules successfully Enabled FCoE QoS policies successfully 如果一切正常就会在5K上看到UCS上的vhba: 5596Top(config)# sh flogi database fc1/48 1000 0xd20040 20:30:8c:60:4f:5b:2b:80 23:e8:8c:60:4f:5b:2b:81 fc1/48 1000 0xd20041 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:06:8f 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:02:8f fc1/48 1000 0xd20042 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:06:9f 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:02:9f fc1/48 1000 0xd20043 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:06:6f 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:02:6f fc1/48 1000 0xd20044 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:06:4f 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:02:4f fc1/48 1000 0xd20045 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:06:7f 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:02:7f fc1/48 1000 0xd20046 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:06:5f 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:02:5f fc1/48 1000 0xd20047 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:06:2f 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:02:2f fc1/48 1000 0xd20048 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:06:3f 20:00:00:25:b5:ff:02:3f
