Proper steps for reconfiguring FCIP tunnel

Hi - I have an active FCIP pipe that is running without compression and write acceleration. I'd like to experiment with these features. How should I go about activating these features. Do I need to down the fcip2 interface on both 9216i first or can I leave the interface up and just activate these features? Thanks a bunch!

Compression can be enabled on the fly w/o disabling anything. However, the FC-WA will move the virtual FCIP interface down. Go ahead and do both sides and then re-enable the fcip interfaces. Be sure to check your replication schema is certified-IE, make sure FC-WA works for your traffic. Roughly speaking, The gain of using compression typically is lost when you are using over 45M of traffic.
