Setting and displaying the fabric name monitoring TOV

You can set the time out value (TOV) for M-MFNM queries of the fabric name to detect whether all N_Ports in a port group are physically connected to the same physical or virtual fabric.

Access Gateway and the PG policy must be enabled for the timeout fnm command to succeed.

Use the timeout fnm value command while in ag configuration mode to set time-out value (TOV) for M-MFNM queries of the fabric name. The valid range is 30 to 3600 seconds. The default value is 120 seconds.

  1. Enter the configure command to access global configuration mode.
    switch# configure
  2. Enter the rbridge-id id command to enter RBridge ID configuration mode for the specific switch.
    switch(config)# rbridge-id 3
  3. Enter the ag command to enter Access Gateway configuration mode.
    switch(config-rbridge-id-3)# ag
  4. Enter the timeout fnm value command to change the time out value for fabric name queries.
    switch(config-rbridge-id-3-ag)# timeout fnm 60
  5. Enter timeout timeout fnm without a value to display the current M-MFNM timeout value.
    switch(config-rbridge-id-3-ag)# timeout fnm
    () (60)
