How and where to Start my Way to Cisco or MDS Switches Knowledge ?????

Hi All,

Good Morning, Good Evening,

I have been in the Storage Industries from Past four years. I am installing the Netapp (NAS). But now I wanted to shift into SAN as I have not experienced the SAN But i have cleared the SAN concepts. When I come across some of the interviews of SAN I could able to find out max on the Switches like Cisco and MDS or Brocade. I have Configured the Cisco Switches (ETH) and Not FC @ my early ages of the experiences (When I was doing CCNA). I did not get any chance of Configuring the FC switches.

My query is The basic Configuring of ETH and FC are same or not ? If no the my second query is ..... Below

2) Is there any Simulators available of the Cisco switches (FC) ? if No then my third query is ..... Below

3) Is there any Docs with Installtion plus Administartion of Cisco and their Product line.

Instead I also want to increase my knowledge in the the Switch(s) world hence GURUS and Experts please help me in the way to proceed to Switches Knowledge.....

Advance thanks for your help.....

Regards,

R K....

Hi

R K,


1) My query is The basic Configuring of ETH and FC are same or not ? If no the my second query is ..... Below
fc interface configuration is a little different.
Here is the 5.0 interface config guide.

R. K,

I would also take a look at the Cisco Storage Networking Cookbook, which covers both MDS and Nexus product lines for NXOS version 5.x.  It's got a format that is easy to digest for people that know what they want to do but not sure what commands are needed, or what a leading practice is for it.

Also, as always post your questions in this forum and the community is always ready to help you out.

Good luck on your journey,

Seth
