Access Gateway with FCoE logical SANs

Access Gateways play a central role in supporting the FCoE Logical SANs feature, and require special configuration.

Logical SANs can be configured as either local or remote. A local SAN provides logical separation within the VCS Fabric, while a remote SAN provides Fibre Channel SAN connectivity through an Access Gateway in the fabric. The Access Gateway provides connectivity to only one logical SAN, while other switches in the fabric can be configured to support multiple logical SANs.

For an overview of the role of Access Gateways in this feature and how to configure them, refer to the chapter "Configuring FCoE Logical SANs" in the Network OS Layer 2 Switching Configuration Guide.
