Configuring Access Gateway under FlexPort
This procedure describes the recommended flow for configuring Access Gateway under FlexPort.
- Using FlexPort commands, convert needed Ethernet ports to FC ports. For details, refer to "Configuring FlexPort," in the Network OS Layer 2 Switching Configuration Guide.
- Configure FCoE. For details, refer to the "FCoE interface configuration" section of the Network OS Layer 2 Switching Configuration Guide.
Enable Access Gateway.

NOTEFirst configuring FCoE and then using FlexPort to reconfigure Ethernet ports as FC ports might lead to suboptimal login balance among online N_Ports. If needed, refer to "Restoring_Port login balance." You can also turn off login balancing for a Port Group (as described in "Enabling and disabling Login Balancing mode") and manually map VF_Ports to N_Ports.
