I need some advice about the configuration of a SAN configuration between an UCS and a Nexus, I checked a lot of document but nothing is clear (for me) to understand the correct configuration and to to apply it.
First of all, I have an err-disable on nexus (VLAN L2 problem) and ucs (SFP imcompatibility).
I have 2 (twinax cables) connected between ucs6248 and nexus 5548UP
Which configuration do I need to configure on the UCS ? fc or fcoe
Which configuration do I need to configure on the Nexus ?fc or vfc
Can I use a twinax cable or a sfp module with fiber cable ?
Use of switch or NPIV mode ?
use of switchport mode E or F ?
Or a link who explain the process I need to follow.
As I mentioned in my previous email, from the FI you will still have to configure pure fc uplink (which will have to uplink to the 5548 in your case). hence the config you need to apply will be fc. You can have the 8 gig FC uplink.
With the twinax cables you can only have the ethernet uplinks configured from the 6248 to the 5548 and since its pure ethernet there is no support for fc (vsan).
