Update recommendation All products supported by Fabric OS 6.0.x can be upgraded to Fabric OS 6.3.0c, with the exception of the following switches: HP StorageWorks 4/8 SAN Switch HP StorageWorks 4/16 SAN Switch Brocade 4Gb SAN Switch for HP p-Class BladeSystem Brocade 4Gb SAN Switch for HP c-Class BladeSystem If applicable, HP recommends that you upgrade to Fabric OS 6.3.0c as soon as possible to take advantage of the latest fixes and features.
NOTE: Advanced Compression is supported only with Fabric OS 6.3.0a and later. Adaptive Rate Limiting (ARL)—The DC SAN Director Multiprotocol Extension Blade and 1606 Extension SAN Switch allow an FCIP tunnel connection to dynamically change the rate at which the tunnel transmits data through the TCP connections. ARL uses the information from the TCP connections to determine and adjust the rate limit for the FCIP tunnel dynamically.
NOTE: For specific information on HP support for B-series and M-series interop fabrics, see the HP StorageWorks Merging Fabrics Based on M-series and B-series Fibre Channel Switches Application Notes . CEE/FCoE features 802.1x defines a client/server-based authentication protocol for port access control. It prohibits unknown/unauthorized clients from connecting to an Ethernet network through publicly accessible ports.
8 Link Inter-chassis links (ICL 8 link)—This license activates all 8 links on ICL ports on a DC04 SAN Director chassis for connection of two DC04 directors, or half of the ICL bandwidth for each ICL port on the DC SAN Backbone Director platform by enabling only 8 of the 16 links available. This allows users to purchase half the bandwidth of DC SAN Backbone Director ICL ports initially, and then upgrade with an additional 8-link license to utilize the full ICL bandwidth.
Included licensed software Enhanced Group Management—This license is included with all HP 8-Gb switches. Enhanced Group Management enables full management of the device in a data center fabric, with increased element management functionality and management task aggregation throughout the environment. This license is used in conjunction with the DCFM application software.

HP StorageWorks Merging Fabrics Based on M-series and B-series Fibre Channel Switches Application Notes, available at http://www.hp.com. When routing to an M-EOS edge fabric using frame redirection, the fabric must have a Fabric OS-based product in order to configure the frame redirection zone information. When directly attached to a host or target that is part of an encryption flow.

Important notes This section contains information that you should consider before you use this Fabric OS release. DCFM compatibility Fabric OS 6.3.0c is fully compatible with DCFM 10.3.x management software. DCFM is a comprehensive SAN management application that enables end-to-end management of HP B-series data center fabrics.
When using the new Virtual Fabrics (VF) feature, HP recommends that all switches participating in a fabric with a logical switch use the latest firmware available. All switches must be operating at the minimum firmware levels or later, as noted in the FOS Interoperability table. When using either the Encryption SAN Switch or DC Switch Encryption FC Blade, switches that are attached to hosts and targets or that are part of the encryption flow must operate at the following minimum levels:...
Frame Redirection over FCR FCR Fabric Binding (route to M-EOS fabric with Fabric Binding) L2 Fabric Binding DCC policies SCC policies E/EX_Port Authentication ISL Trunking (frame level) Dynamic Path Selection (DPS, exchange-based routing) Dynamic Load Sharing (DLS, port-based routing) Virtual Channels (VC RDY) FICON Management Server (Cascading) FICON MIHPTO Full Scalability (to maximum M-EOS fabric limits)
Platform Service FCIP (VE_Ports) IPFC (IP over FC) M-EOS ALPA 0x13 configuration VE_Port to VEX_Port Integrated Routing Domain Offset Support 239 Domain Support (available on Mi10K only) Masterless F_Port Trunking (AG connect to Fabric OS switches only) FC10-6 to FC10-6 ISL RASLog Events on Duplicate WWNs Virtual Fabrics Logical Fabric using LISLs (XISLs in base Fabric)
NOTE: FICON Cascaded CUP is qualified on select platforms only. Firmware upgrades and downgrades Upgrading to Fabric OS 6.3.0c is allowed only from Fabric OS 6.2.0a or later. The policy to support one-level migration only, which began with Fabric OS 6.0.0, provides more reliable and robust migrations.
Firmware upgrade instructions IMPORTANT: HP recommends that you upgrade to Fabric OS 6.3.0c as soon as possible to take advantage of the fixes and new features. Upgrading to Fabric OS 6.3.0c is allowed only from Fabric OS 6.2.x. For more guidelines, see Update recommendation”...
HP Storage Essentials support HP Storage Essentials SAN management application 6.1.1 or later is supported with Fabric OS 6.3.0x. Earlier versions of HP Storage Essentials are not supported with Fabric OS 6.3.0x due to the incompatibility of Storage Essentials with the SMI-S 120.10.0 agent. FCIP, FCIP Trunking and High Bandwidth (1606 Extension SAN Switch and DC SAN Director Multiprotocol Extension Blade) The 1606 Extension SAN Switch/DC SAN Director Multiprotocol Extension Blade supports a...
Fabric OS 6.3 supports only up to four 1-Gb circuits per VE/FCIP tunnel for the 1-Gb interfaces. A VE/FCIP tunnel created over 10-Gb interfaces will be limited to 10 circuits created using IPIFs on the same 10-GbE port (and no more than 1 Gb per circuit). As a recommended best practice, the VE tunnel should not be oversubscribed (for example, 8-Gb FC traffic over 500 Mb/s tunnel).
Hot-plugging a CP with a firmware level earlier than Fabric OS 6.3.0 into a DC SAN Backbone Director or DC04 SAN Director with an active DC SAN Director Switch 10/24 FCoE Blade will result in the new standby CP not coming up. HP recommends that Converged Mode be enabled on all interfaces connected to CNAs.
Upgrades from Fabric OS 6.3 to future releases will be nondisruptive to data traffic and will have behavior similar to a CP failover; ethsw remains unchanged. Downgrade from Fabric OS 6.3 to 6.1.2_cee1 is disruptive if ethsw is enabled on Fabric OS 6.3.
Virtual Fabrics On VF-capable platforms, the VF feature (initially supported with Fabric OS 6.2.0a) must be enabled in order to utilize the related capabilities, including logical switches and logical fabrics. When creating logical fabrics that include switches that are not VF-capable, it is possible to have two logical switches with different FIDs in the same fabric.
NOTE: After upgrading to this firmware release, if users want to enable the Adaptive Networking QoS feature on 4-Gb platforms and on the Extended Fabrics E_Ports on both 4-Gb and 8-Gb platforms, they must do so explicitly through the available user interfaces. QoS is supported on switches in Access Gateway mode with Fabric OS 6.3.0x.
Switch EX_Port. To avoid this, ensure that the Mi10k is operating with MEOS 9.9.5 or later for this configuration. Integrated routing To allow HCL on an 8/40 SAN Switch when using Integrated Routing, the edge switch connected to the 8/40 SAN Switch must be running Fabric OS 6.1 or later. Integrated Routing EX_Ports are supported only in the base switch on a switch with VF enabled.
FICON For the DC SAN Backbone Director, FICON is not allowed with a 48-port blade in the Default Logical Switch. All ports on a 48–port blade must be assigned to a user-defined Logical Switch to use them in a FICON enabled switch. The DC04 SAN Director is not supported for FICON Cascading in interopmode 2 or 3 for use in mixed fabrics with M-EOS platforms.
As a best practice for deploying Fabric OS switches and directors into a FICON environment, verify the Fabric OS version shipped with the most current Fabric OS recommendation. HP Manageability recommends that you update all Fabric OS switches and directors to the same Fabric OS levels for production.
Port Mirroring On the 8/80 SAN Switch, the Port Mirroring feature has a limitation where all port mirror resources must remain in the same ASIC port group. The resources are the configure mirror port, Source Device, and Destination Device or ISL, if the Destination Device is located on another switch. The ASIC port groups are 0-15, 16-31, 32-47, 48-63, and 64-79.
Time Division Multiplexor (TDM). To overcome this limitation and provide support for frame-based trunking with Extended Fabrics, Fabric OS 6.2.x and later has been enhanced to support interop- erability with these distance extension devices. Fabric OS 6.3.0 and later allows Extended Fabrics E_Ports to operate in VC_RDY mode using either ARB or IDLE primitives as fill words.
ARB(FF)/ARB(FF) for initialization and fill words. The portcfgfillword command configures the ARB/ARB implementation. portCfgFillWord command The portCfgFillWord command configures the fill word for a single 8-Gb FC port.

This command disables and re-enables the port;...
will take effect. The persistent configuration is on a port-by-port basis; that is, if an 8-Gb device is connected to a 2-Gb or 4-Gb SFP, and that SFP is replaced with an 8-Gb SFP, then the current behavior of the mode is activated.

If two Encryption Engines are part of a High Availability Cluster, configure the host/target pair such that they form a multipath from both EEs. Avoid connecting both the host/target pairs to the same EE. This connectivity does not give full redundancy in case of EE failure resulting in HAC failover.
Before committing configurations or modifications to the CTC or LUNs on an HP Encryption Switch or HP Encryption Blade, make sure that there are no outstanding zoning transactions in the switch or fabric. Failure to do so results in the commit operation for the CTC or LUNs failing and may cause the LUNs to be disabled.
In the event of the GL node failing to come back up, the GL node can be replaced with a new node. The following are the procedures to allow an EG to function with existing member nodes and to replace the failed GL node with a new node. Make one of the existing member nodes the Group Leader node and continue operations.
to Block-0 again (and if the key is expired), a new key is created and used henceforth. The expired key is then marked as read only and used only for restoring data from previously encrypted tapes.
