Connecting FI 6200 series with SAN Storage with FC and FCoE
I'm trying to make a solution where the Fabric Interconnect will handle direct link with the storages but i don't know how to do it on the new FI 6200 series. For instance I can make the FC expansion module in 6100 series to switch and leave the fixed port as end host, but how can i do it on the new FI 6200 series if I am not using any expansion module because the fixed port ammount is enough.
Re: Connecting FI 6200 series with SAN Storage with FC and FCoE
Before you can utilize a 6200 Port as an FC interface you must configure the unified ports accordingly.
From UCSM, right click on the FI and select Configure Unified Ports. Here you will see a slider bar where you will set the separation of which ports will be Ethernet (FCoE included) and which will be Fiber Channel. All ports to the left of the slider bar will be Ethernet, while all ports on the right will be FC.
Keep in mind modifying unified ports on the fixes module on a 6200 will require a reboot of the FI. If you're modifying an expansion module of unified ports, then you only reboot the expansion module.
