  • Page 31: Device Security

    A group is a list of device worldwide names that are authorized to attach to a switch. There are three types of groups: one for other switches (ISL), another for devices (port), and a third for devices issuing management server commands (MS). A security set is a set of up to three groups with no more than one of each group type.

  • Page 32: Edit Security Dialog

    Edit Security dialog Use the Edit Security dialog is to edit the security configuration on the switch. You can also open and edit a security configuration saved to a file. Editing security files consists of renaming and removing security sets, groups, and members. The Security dialogs are available only on a secure (SSL) fabric and on the entry switch (out of band switch).

  • Page 33: Create Security Set Dialog, Create Security Group Dialog

    An empty (no members) security group in the active security set will prevent all connections for that security group type. For example, an empty ISL security group will cause the switch to refuse all logins from other switches.

  • Page 43: Displaying The Event Browser, Topology Display Switch And Status Icons

    The topology display uses switch and status icons to provide status information about switches, inter-switch links, and the Ethernet connection. The switch status icons, displayed on the left side of a switch, vary in shape and color. Switches controlled by an Ethernet Internet Protocol have a colored Ethernet icon displayed on the right side of the switch.

  • Page 44: Event Browser, Severity Levels

    The maximum number of entries allowed in the Event Browser is 10,000. The maximum number of entries allowed on a switch is 1200. Once the maximum is reached, the event list wraps and the oldest events are discarded and replaced with the new events. Event entries from the switch, use the switch time stamp, while event entries generated by the application have a workstation time stamp.

  • Page 45: Sorting The Event Browser, Filtering The Event Browser, Filter Events Dialog

    Events (alarms, critical, warning, and informative) generated by the application are not saved on the switch. They are permanently discarded when you close a McDATA Web Server session, but you can save these events to a file on the workstation before you close McDATA Web Server and read it later with a text editor or browser.

  • Page 46: Saving The Event Browser To A File, Devices Data Window, Devices Data Window Entries

    The Devices data window displays information about devices (hosts and storage targets) connected to the switch. Click the Devices data window tab, in either the topology or faceplate display, to display device information for all devices that are logged into the selected fabric. To narrow the display to devices that are logged into specific switches, select one or more switches in the fabric tree or the topology display.

  • Page 50: Zoning A Fabric, Zoning Concepts, Zones, Aliases

    If EFCM or HAFM are used to manage the fabric, it is recommended to use EFCM or HAFM to manage the fabric zoning. If EFCM or HAFM are not used and other McDATA switch models are in the fabric, it is recommended to use SANpilot or Embedded Web Server to manage the fabric zoning.

  • Page 51: Zone Sets, Zoning Database, Viewing Zoning Limits And Properties

    Zone sets A zone set is a named group of zones. A zone can be a member of more than one zone set. Each switch in the fabric maintains its own zoning database containing one or more zone sets. This zoning database resides in non-volatile or permanent memory and is therefore retained after a reset.

  • Page 52: Managing The Zoning Database, Editing The Zoning Database, Edit Zoning Dialog

    Figure 25 To apply zoning to a fabric, choose a zone set and activate it. When you activate a zone set, the switch distributes that zone set and its zones, excluding aliases, to every switch in the fabric. This zone set is known as the active zone set.

  • Page 53: Edit Zoning Dialog Tool Bar Buttons And Icons

    You cannot edit an active zone set on a switch. You must configure an inactive zone set to your needs and then activate that updated zone set to apply the changes to the fabric. When you activate a zone set, the switch distributes that zone set to the temporary zoning database on every switch in the fabric.

  • Page 54: Configuring The Zoning Database, Interop Auto Save, Zoning Config Dialog

    The Interop Auto Save parameter determines whether changes to the active zone set that a switch receives from other switches in the fabric will be saved to the zoning database on that switch. Changes are saved when an updated zone set is activated. Zoning changes are always saved to temporary memory. However, if Interop Auto Save is enabled, the switch firmware saves changes to the active zone set in temporary memory and to the zoning database.

  • Page 55: Default Visibility, Default Zone, Discard Inactive, Saving The Zoning Database To A File

    It is recommended that all switches have the same Default Visibility setting. When default visibility is enabled (All, the default) on a switch, all ports on the switch can communicate with all ports on switches that also have Default Visibility enabled.

  • Page 56: Removing All Zoning Definitions, Managing Zone Sets, Creating A Zone Set

    When a zone set is activated, it is propagated and saved to temporary memory in each McDATA 4Gb SAN Switch in the fabric. If a McDATA 4Gb SAN Switch has the Interop Auto Save parameter enabled in the Zoning Config dialog, the zone set is saved to permanent memory on that switch.

  • Page 57: Activating And Deactivating A Zone Set, Copying A Zone To A Zone Set

    You must activate a zone set to apply its zoning definitions to the fabric. Only one zone set can be active at one time. When you activate a zone set, the switch distributes that zone set to the temporary zoning database on every McDATA 4Gb SAN Switch in the fabric.

  • Page 58: Managing Zones, Creating A Zone In A Zone Set, Adding Zone Members

    When a zone set is activated, it is propagated and saved to temporary memory in each McDATA 4Gb SAN Switch in the fabric.

  • Page 59: Renaming A Zone Or A Zone Set, Removing A Zone Member

    The orphan zone set is created by the application automatically to hold the zones which are not in any set. The orphan zone set cannot be removed and is not saved on the switch. To remove a zone from a zone set, perform the following procedure: Select the zone to be removed in the Edit Zoning dialog.

  • Page 60: Managing Aliases, Creating An Alias, Adding A Member To An Alias

    NOTE: Changes that you make to the zoning database are limited to the managed switch and do not propagate to the rest of the fabric. To distribute changes to configured zone sets fabric wide, you must edit the zoning databases on the individual switches.

  • Page 61: Merging Fabrics And Zoning, Zone Merge Failure, Zone Merge Failure Recovery

    Merging fabrics and zoning If you join two fabrics with an inter-switch link, the active zone sets from the two fabrics attempt to merge automatically. The fabrics may consist of a single switch or many switches already connected together. The switches in the two fabrics attempt to create a new active zone set containing the union of each fabric's active zone set.

    Switch Properties dialog Symbolic name The symbolic name is a user-defined name of up to 32 characters that identifies the switch. The symbolic name is used in the topology and faceplate displays, as well as many data windows to more easily identify switches.

  • Page 77: Switch Administrative States, Domain Id And Domain Id Lock

    ID conflict in the fabric, the switch with the highest principal priority, or the principal switch, will reassign any domain ID conflicts and establish the fabric. If you lock the domain ID on a switch and a domain ID conflict occurs, one of the switches will isolate as a separate fabric and the Logged-In LEDs on both switches will flash to show the affected ports.

  • Page 78: Fabric Device Management Interface, Corresponding Domain Id Values By Interop Mode

    Locking the domain ID prevents the principal switch from assigning a domain ID when the switch is added to the fabric. In a fabric where the principal switch is an M-series director or edge switch, this is not an issue. In a fabric where the McDATA 4Gb SAN Switch may be the principal switch, changing from McDATA Fabric mode to Standard mode without configuring the valid ID range and locking it, may result in the switch domain ID being converted to a number not within the valid range.
