Disabling Access Gateway mode

Disabling Access Gateway (AG) mode returns the switch to native VCS mode. Disabling AG mode also removes all AG configuration, including port mapping and N_Port configuration.

Before enabling or disabling AG mode, ensure that the following conditions are fulfilled:
  • All Fibrechannel interfaces are in shut state.
  • There are no ports provisioned for FCoE.
  • The RBridge ID of the switch is not specified in the FCoE forwarder (FCF) configuration.

Use the following procedure to disable AG mode on the switch.

  1. Display the current AG state and configuration by entering the show ag rbridge-id rbridge-id command in privileged EXEC mode.
    device# show ag rbridge-id 1

    If Access Gateway configuration data displays, as shown in Displaying Access Gateway configuration data, AG is enabled.

    If "AG mode not set" displays as shown in the following example, AG is not enabled.

    device# show ag rbridge-id 2
    AG mode not set.

    For more information on displaying the current AG configuration on a switch or all AG switches in a VCS cluster using this command, refer to Displaying Access Gateway configuration data.

  2. Enter the configure terminal command to change to global configuration mode.
    device# configure terminal
  3. Enter the rbridge-id command, specifying the RBridge ID.
    device(config)# rbridge-id 1
  4. Enter the ag command to change to AG configuration mode.
    device(config-rbridge-id-1)# ag
  5. Disable AG mode by entering the no enable command.
    device(config-rbridge-id-1-ag)# no enable
