  • Page 2: Fc Npv Overview

    In FC NPV mode, the edge switch relays all traffic to the core switch and shares the domain ID of the core switch. FC NPV is enabled by installing and enabling feature-set fcoe-npv. You cannot configure FC NPV mode on a per-interface basis. FC NPV mode applies to the entire switch. Cisco Nexus 9000 Series NX-OS FC NPV Configuration Guide...
  • Page 3: Server Interfaces

    • The default speed is 16 G. NP Uplinks • In Cisco Nexus 9000 Series switches, NP uplink interfaces can be native Fibre Channel interfaces, virtual fiber channel interfaces, SAN port channel interfaces, or virtual ethernet port-channel interfaces. • All interfaces from the edge switch to the core switch are configured as proxy N ports (NP ports).
  • Page 4: San Port Channels

    IDLE speed 8000 no shutdown • For the FLOGI from NP uplink of Cisco Nexus 9000 Series switches to be successful on the core Note switch, the core should be configured with the OUI of a Cisco Nexus 9000 Series switch. Configure the OUI on the core only if the core has not registered the OUI by default.
  • Page 5: Configuring San Port Channels

    SAN port channel is functioning as required. SAN Port Channel Guidelines and Limitations • The number of SAN port channels and virtual FC port channels, together, can be only 8 on the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series switch.
  • Page 6: About San Port Channel Modes

    SAN port channel increases the channel size and bandwidth of the SAN port channel. Removing an interface from a SAN port channel decreases the channel size and bandwidth of the SAN port channel. Note Virtual Fibre Channel interfaces cannot be added to SAN port channels. Cisco Nexus 9000 Series NX-OS FC NPV Configuration Guide...

    NP uplink becomes operational. To move a server interface from one NP uplink to another NP uplink, FC NPV forces reinitialization of the server interface so that the server performs a new login to the core switch. Cisco Nexus 9000 Series NX-OS FC NPV Configuration Guide...
  • Page 11: Fc Npv Traffic Management Guidelines

    • Fibre Channel N-port Virtualization (NPV) can co-exist with VXLAN on different fabric uplinks but on same or different front panel ports on the Cisco Nexus 93180YC-FX switches. VXLAN can only exist on the Ethernet front panel ports but not on the FC front panel ports.
