UCS FC switch features

I would like to know, if UCS is in FC switch mode, connecting E-port to a upstream MDS switch; does the UCS FC switch support

- all zoning and zoneset activation has to be done on the MDS, and is pushed down to UCS ? correct ?

- enhanced zoning (per VSAN) supported

- device alias supported (per fabric)

- fc alias (per VSAN) supported ?

 The UCS system by default

 


The UCS system by default works in End-Host Mode.UCS does not support FC switch support.

Yes, all zoning and zoneset activation has to be done on the MDS, and is pushed down to UCS.

It supports enhanced zoning (per VSAN) , device alias supported (per fabric) and fc alias (per VSAN) supported.

Sorry, but here is the answer

Sorry, but here is the answer to my own questions, verified in the lab, and crosschecked with Cisco Engineering.

1) YES, UCS supports FC switch mode

2) NO, UCS only supports basic zoning (see attachment); and there is no roadmap to change this. Therefore if your MDS fabric has configured enhanced zoning, the trunk between UCS and MDS will not come up.

3) Static domain id's cannot be configured on the UCS FC switch

4) device-alias db propagation from MDS to UCS works ok
