I have been tasked with connecting up 2 x Nexus 5548's to an HPc7000 Blade Chassis with a Flex Fabric card, and also to a Netapp 3240
I want to run FCOE and am just looking for info on how to configure this.
Can anyone provide any pointers on where to start looking for this info?
I am going on a Nexus course in a few weeks to get up to speed on the technology, but need to start making some progress on the connectivity.
We already have all the ports populated with SFP's so will be using fibre for connectivity
My experience with Nexus is nil
A typical Flexfabric with Nexus 5548 setup would looks like this.
Summary steps would be
1. If you have 5548UP (unified port) then you need to choose the range of port which you want to make is as ethernet OR fc port followed by reload of switch.
2. Configure virtual port channel domain, peer link and peer keepalive link between two nexus 5548.
3. Configure port connected to flexfabric module as virtual port-channel.
4. Configure SAN A and SAN B (VSANs) on each switch and configure fc interfaces connected to flex fabric modules as E_ports.
