Using Fibre Channel port commands

Network OS v2.1.1 and later allows you to configure and display the following attributes for a Fibre Channel port by using the commands shown below:

  • Port speed — Enter the interface Fibre Channel configuration submode speed command to set the speed of a Fibre Channel port.
  • Trunk port — Enter the interface Fibre Channel configuration submode trunk-enable command to configure the port for trunking.
  • Buffer credit control — Enter the interface Fibre Channel configuration submode isl-r_r-rdy command to enable interswitch link receiver-ready (ISL R_RDY) mode on the port. Enter the interface Fibre Channel configuration submode no isl-r_r-rdy command to disable ISL R_RDY mode on the port. If ISL R_RDY is not set, then Inter-SwitchLink Virtual Channel ready (ISL VC_RDY) mode is set by default.
  • Forward error correction — fec-enable is set by default for 16G FC port speeds; use no fec-enable to disable this capability.
  • FC port type restriction — config-mode allows the following possible completions:
    • auto — Configures the port as a G-Port (locked).
    • eport — Configures the port as a E-Port (locked).
    • fport — Configures the port as a F-Port (locked).
    • nport — Configures the port as a N-Port (locked).
  • Port group speed — The hardware connector group-speed configuration allows you to set the allowed speed ranges and protocol type for groups of FlexPorts.
ATTENTION
Setting ISL R_RDY is not recommended.
