Question about FCOE and IP, in Nexus 5596

Dear Mister

Is possible to do the next. I need to have the two protocols in one 10G interface : FCOE and IP.

The scenary is the next. I have a conection from the FCOE toward FC in Nexus 5596. The servers belong to Blade HP is not using a Virtual Connect. The nexus 5596 is functioning like a "bridge" FC. NPV mode.

This part, the VFC traffic toward the FC interface is functioning.

But I have another part not functioning. Is the IP part.

Is possible to do this? Two protocols (FCOE and IP ) functioning in the same wire? In the next configuration, FCOE is functioning, but IP, the vlan 500 IS NOT working. What is the mistake?

This is the configuracion about FCOE and FC.

slot 1

  port 41-48 type fc

vlan 300

  fcoe vsan 2

vlan 500-549                                        #Vlan about IP

vsan database

  vsan 2

interface Vlan500

  no shutdown

  no ip redirects

  ip address 180.122.228.3/26

  ip router ospf 1 area 0.0.0.40

interface vfc37

  bind interface Ethernet1/18

  no shutdown

vsan database

  vsan 2 interface vfc37

feature npv

npv traffic-map server-interface vfc37 external-interface fc1/41-42

npv auto-load-balance disruptive

interface fc1/41

  no shutdown

interface fc1/42

  no shutdown

interface Ethernet1/18

  switchport mode trunk

  spanning-tree port type edge trunk

interface fc1/41

  switchport speed 8000

interface fc1/42

  switchport speed 8000

FCOE:

I need help.

Unified fabric is all about FC and classical ethernet/IP traffic on the same wire and it should work. When you say IP part is not working. Can you ellaborate?

Hi,

I am not an expert but you could try to add the VLANs to the eth1/18 with command "switchport trunk allowed ..."

interface Ethernet1/18

  switchport mode trunk

  spanning-tree port type edge trunk

as accoring to the config output not all the vlan are allowed.

Thank you .

Well, the problem was in the server. The customer configure a tag 500 in the ethernet interface, and the traffic functioned ok.
