Fibre Channel interfaces

OS10 unified port groups support Fibre Channel (FC) interfaces. A unified port group operates in Fibre Channel or Ethernet mode. To activate FC interfaces, configure a port group to operate in Fibre Channel mode and specify the port speed. By default, FC interfaces are disabled.

S4148U-ON

On a S4148U-ON, FC interfaces are available in all port groups. The activated FC interfaces depend on the currently configured port profile. For more information, see S4148U-ON port profiles.

To enable a Fibre Channel interface:

  1. Configure a unified port group in CONFIGURATION mode. Enter 1/1 for node/slot. The port-group range depends on the switch.
    port-group 
                                        node/slot/port-group
  2. Activate the unified port group for FC operation in PORT-GROUP mode. The available FC modes depend on the switch.
    mode fc {32g-4x | 32g-2x | 32g-1x | 16g-4x
                                         | 16g-2x | 8g-4x}
                                     
    • 8g-4x — Split a unified port group into four 8 GFC interfaces.
    • 16g-2x — Split a unified port group into two 16 GFC interfaces.
    • 16g-4x — Split a unified port group into four 16 GFC interfaces.
    • 32g-1x — Split a unified port group into one 32 GFC interface. A 1x-32G interface has a rate limit of 28G.
    • 32g-2x — Split a unified port group into two 32 GFC interfaces.
    • 32g-4x — Split a unified port group into four 32 GFC interfaces. Each 4x-32GE breakout interface has a rate limit of 25G.
  3. Return to CONFIGURATION mode.
    exit
  4. Enter FC Interface mode to enable data transmission. Enter a single interface, a hyphen-separated range, or multiple interfaces separated by commas.
    interface fibrechannel 
                                        node/slot/port[:subport]
  5. (Optional) Reconfigure the interface speed in INTERFACE mode.
    speed {8 | 16 | 32 | auto}
  6. Enable the FC interface in INTERFACE mode.
    no shutdown
