FC zone The VSAN technique divides one physical SAN into multiple logical SANs. A VSAN, however, cannot perform access control over the servers and disk devices (or the N_Ports) connected to a fabric. N_Ports in the same VSAN can access one another only if these N_Ports register name services.

  • Page 14: How Fcoe Works

    FCoE frames To transmit an FC frame over Ethernet, FCoE encapsulates the FC frame in an FCoE frame by adding an Ethernet frame header to the FC frame. An FCoE frame uses Ethernet II encapsulation, which has the following fields in the Ethernet header: EtherType 0x8906.

  • Page 15

    A VN interface of an ENode. A VFC interface of another FCF switch. After the virtual link is established, the FCF switch encapsulates the FC frame in an FCoE frame and sends it out. After receiving the FCoE frame, the FCF switch removes its Ethernet header to send the original FC frame to the upper layer for processing.

  • Page 16: Fcoe Modes

    If they match, the switch replies with a solicited Discovery Advertisement, whose fcf priority − field carries the FCF priority of the VFC interface. If they do not match, the switch discards the Discovery Solicitation. − The FCF switch periodically sends unsolicited Discovery Advertisements, whose fcf priority field carries the FCF priority of the system.

  • Page 17: Fcf Mode

    FCF mode An FCF switch encapsulates FC frames in Ethernet frames and uses FCoE virtual links to simulate physical FC links. In this way, an FCF switch provides standard FC switching capabilities and features on a lossless Ethernet network. Figure 10 FCF network diagram Ethernet FC switch switch...

  • Page 22: Configuring Fc Interfaces

    Configuring FC interfaces An FC interface connects to a node (server or disk) or FC switch for transmitting and receiving FC frames. To connect to an FC interface of a peer device, you must use an FC interface. An FC interface can operate in E_Port, F_Port, NP_Port, or auto mode. Changing the port type between a Layer 2 Ethernet interface and an FC interface Layer 2 Ethernet interfaces can be changed to FC interfaces.

  • Page 77: Configuring Fc Routing And Forwarding

    Configuring FC routing and forwarding Overview Routing and forwarding in an FC SAN is achieved through FC switches. When an FC switch receives a packet, an FC switch performs the following operations: • Selects an optimal route based on the destination address. Forwards the packet to the next FC switch in the path until the packet reaches the last FC switch.

  • Page 104: Configuring Fc Zones

    Configuring FC zones Overview The VSAN technology divides a physical SAN into multiple VSANs, which are separated from one another, and provides more secure, reliable, and flexible services. A VSAN, however, cannot perform access control over the servers and disk devices (or the N_Ports) connected to a fabric. N_Ports in the same VSAN can access one another only if these N_Ports register name services.

  • Page 105

    Figure 31 Zone database structure In the zone database structure: A zone set is a set of zones. A zone is a set of zone members, which are N_Ports or F_Ports. N_Port • membership can be identified by the port WWN (pWWN) or FC address of an N_Port. F_Port membership can be identified by the WWN of an F_Port (fWWN).

  • Page 106

    Figure 32 Active and full zone sets In basic zoning mode, the system checks the size of the data to be distributed when you activate a zone set. If the size of the data exceeds the system limit, the activation fails, and an error message is displayed. In enhanced zoning mode, the system does not limit the size of the data to be distributed.

  • Page 107: Pairwise

    Pairwise The Pairwise feature is supported only in enhanced zoning mode. Typically, servers do not need to access each other, and storage devices do not need to access each other. Without the Pairwise feature, an access entry is generated for any pair of members in a zone. The Pairwise feature allows a member to access only members with a different role in the same zone.

    Acquire Change Authorization (ACA). • • Stage Fabric Configuration Update (SFC). Update Fabric Configuration (UFC). • Release Change Authorization (RCA). • These types of packets implement locking, data synchronization, submission, and unlocking processes, respectively. These processes ensure that only one switch is the managing switch when multiple users trigger a data distribution on different switches at the same time.

  • Page 109: Zone Distribution In Enhanced Zoning Mode

    If the managing switch does not receive ACC packets from one or more managed switches, it sends an RCA request to notify each managed switch to release the change authorization state. If the managed switch replies with neither an ACC packet nor an RJT packet because of its abnormal state, the managing switch cannot be released from its locked state.

  • Page 110: Zone Merge In Basic Zoning Mode

    For zone distribution in enhanced zoning mode, the SFC request always has hard zoning status. For zone distribution caused by a switchover from basic zoning to enhanced zoning, the SFC request carries hard zoning status. For zone distribution caused by a switchover from enhanced zoning to basic zoning, the SFC request does not have hard zoning status.

  • Page 111

    Figure 34 Zone merge process between two switches The zone merge process is as follows: Switch A and Switch B are new neighbors to each other. Suppose that Switch A first initiates a merge to Switch B. Switch A sends an MRRA request carrying the size of its data to be merged to Switch B. After receiving the MRRA request, Switch B determines whether to accept the merge according to its local data size.

  • Page 112: Zone Merge In Enhanced Zoning Mode

    After the merge process initiated by Switch A is complete, Switch B initiates a merge process to all its neighbors. This synchronizes Switch B's local database changes resulting from the merge to the entire fabric. Two 1-way merge processes can ensure data consistency between Switch A and Switch B. NOTE: Consistent active zone sets among switches can be achieved by a merge.

    Configuring the default zone policy In enhanced zoning mode, the switch distributes the default zone policy with other zone data. In basic zoning mode, you must manually configure a consistent default zone policy across the fabric. When the switch performs a zoning mode switchover, it also distributes the default zone policy with other zone data.

  • Page 118: Enabling Hard Zoning

    In enhanced zoning mode, the merge control mode affects the result of a merge operation. Also, a merge operation is allowed only when the merge control mode is the same on both participating switches. Otherwise, the merge operation fails, and the link connecting the participating switches is isolated. This feature is supported only in enhanced zoning mode.
