configuring FC ports on cisco5548UP

Hi

I have 2 cisco 5548UP in my test setup.

I had earlier configured the sw for fcoe with an active zoneset with only the first 4 ports used as fcoe.

I now plan to use the last 4 ports 1/32-1/28 as native fc.

As a test I connected an 8gb cisco sfp tp port 32 and followed below steps to turn on fc feature on that port 32

N5K(config)#slot 1

N5K(config-port)#port 32 type fc

N5K(config-port)#copy running-config startup-config

N5K(config-port)#Reload

after reload....

N5K(config-port)#feature fcoe.

But now I dont see my port 1/32 at all in show interface brief. What am I missing. can some please help.

Thanks in advance !!!

Hi Rahul,

I think it is the order that yuu did this.  You may have to reload again.  Feature FCoE needs to be enabled BEFORE you configure the ports as FC.  You configured the ports as FC and reloaded without feature FCoE enabled.

Before You Begin

If you're configuring a unified port as Fibre Channel or FCoE, confirm that  you have enabled  the feature fcoe command.

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    switch# configure terminal

    2.    switch(config) # slot slot number

    3.    switch(config-slot) # port port number type {ethernet | fc}

    4.    switch(config-slot) # copy running-config startup-config

    5.    switch(config-slot) # reload

    6.    switch(config) # no port port number type fc

Re: configuring FC ports on cisco5548UP

Hello,

I have a question concerning 5548UP and ports FC/FCOE.

I understand that 8 ports FC need to be confiure on last 8 ports (E1/25 to E1/32) and the lic N55-8P-SSK9.

But If I don't need 8 FC but 4 FC ports and 4 FCOE ports:

- I need to configure 4 ports to last 4 ports

- is it possible to configure the 4 FCOE ports to any Ethernet ports, or do they have to be to the last 8 ports ?

Thanks a lot,

Hi Gerald,

You can configure only the number of FC ports that you need.  However, remember that they always have to be the highest port numbers so if you configure 4 and then need more, you still have to use the next group, they have to be contiguous, for instance:

You decide to only use 1/29 to 1/32.

Later you need two more FC ports, they will have to be 1/27 and 1/28.

You can use any ethernet port on slot 1 that is not configured for FC.

It has to be a 10Gb ethernet.

Best regards,

Jim
