Configuring a Fibre Channel port for trunking

A link can be configured to be part of a trunk group. Two or more links in a port group form a trunk group when they are configured for the same speed, the same distance level, and their link distances are nearly equal.

  1. In privileged EXEC mode, enter the configure terminal command to enter global configuration mode.
  2. Enter the interface FibreChannel rbridge-id/slot/port command for the desired port.

    A configuration submode prompt appears.

  3. Enter the trunk-enable command.

    The following example configures the link attached to port 4 on RBridge 8 to be part of a trunk group.

    switch# configure terminal
    Entering configuration mode terminal
    switch(config)# rbridge-id 8
    switch(config-rbridge-id-8)# interface FibreChannel 8/0/4
    switch(config-FibreChannel-8/0/4)# trunk-enable
