FCIP Peer in the same VLAN

Unanswered Question


I will have 2 data centre connected with a 1gb possibly 2 x 1gb ethernet link.

There will be some 802.q trunking between location and some traffic will be routed.

I have the option of having my FCIP peer in the same vlan and carried in the trunk. Or have them in different VLAN and routed between location.

Initiallay I though routed would be good because I can use QoS to prioritise FCIP traffice.

But could I still achieve this using single vlan. and is it allowed.

both site are connect using 6509 with sup720s

Hi John,

For the FCIP link it is just an IP connectivity. So, you can do in both ways as you describe. You can route it or use a vlan. Just make sure that you have no too hign RTT. And also there RTT timout setting on FCIP you can play with that according to your RRT in your network.
