vSphere 4.1 + Cisco P81E + Nexus 5010: VSAN operational state:down

Hi,

we have a setup with a nexus 5010 and 2 ucs c200 m2 with p81E CNA.
We have configured the nexus with one vsan, 20, and two vfc. Every cna is bound to his own vfc, and we can see the VFC up, but the vsan operational state is down...

attached the relevant part of configuration

here's the output
# sh int brie

The problem was linked to the fact that in CIMC we MUST set the fcoe vlan in P81E fc0 and fc1.

Hi Gianstefano,

Where do you actually configured the fcoe VLAN in the CIMC ?

Is it the "default vlan " configuration in the HBA ?

Re: vSphere 4.1 + Cisco P81E + Nexus 5010: VSAN operational stat

connect via ssh

scope chassis

scope adapter 1

scope host-fc-if fc0

set vlan

commit

scope host-fc-if fc1

set vlan

commit

YOU MUST REBOOT the ucs before the change takes effect.

That's right. maily 2 parts to let systems know which vlan carry fcoe traffic

1) on N5K side, need

vlan

  fcoe vsan 20

2) on the CIMC's vHBA property

specify as the deault vlan

I can't seem to scope to the

I can't seem to scope to the VIC adapter at all on my C200 M1, even though it's definitely installed and actually functions just fine. White papers show that there should be a "Cisco VIC Adapters" tab in the CIMC, but it doesn't exist for me. I've run HUU and updated everything, but no joy.

Screenshots attached.

Any ideas?
