Fibre channel

F_Port

Fibre channel fabric port (F_Port) is the switch port that connects the Fibre Channel (FC) fabric to a node. S4148U-ON switches support F_Port.

Enable Fibre channel F_Port mode globally using the feature fc domain-ID domain-ID command in CONFIGURATION mode.

Enable Fibre channel F_Port mode
OS10(config)# feature fc domain-id 100

N_Port

A node port (N_Port) is a port on a network node that acts as a host or storage device, and is used in FC point-to-point or FC switched fabric topologies.

N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) allows multiple N_Port IDs to share a single physical N_Port.

The NPIV Proxy Gateway (NPG) provides Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) to Fibre Channel (FC) bridging and vice versa.

Enable NPG mode globally using the feature fc npg command in CONFIGURATION mode.

Enable NPG mode
OS10(config)# feature fc npg
