This section describes how to create and configure VSANs and includes the following topics:
About VSAN Creation
A VSAN is in the operational state if the VSAN is active and at least one port is up. This state indicates
that traffic can pass through this VSAN. This state cannot be configured.
Creating VSANs Statically
You cannot configure any application-specific parameters for a VSAN before creating the VSAN.
To create VSANs, follow these steps:
switch# config t
switch(config)# vsan database
switch(config-vsan-db)# vsan 2
Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide
OX ID based load balancing of IVR traffic from IVR- enabled switches is not supported on
Generation 1 switching modules. OX ID based load balancing of IVR traffic from a non-IVR
MDS switch should work. Generation 2 switching modules support OX ID based load
balancing of IVR traffic from IVR-enabled switches.
