Transitioning between modes

The vcs set-rbridge-id command allows you to change the RBridge ID or optionally the VCS ID of a node, and also to transition the node from logical chassis cluster mode to fabric cluster mode, or back to logical chassis cluster mode again.

ATTENTION
Each time you change the Brocade VCS Fabric configuration, the switch resets to the default configuration and reboots automatically. Make sure to save the configuration before you issue this command.

To change the RBridge ID of a node to 10:

device# vcs set-rbridge-id 10 

To change the RBridge ID of a node to 10 and itcs VCS ID to 35:

device# vcs set-rbridge-id 10 vcsid 35

To convert a node that is in fabric cluster mode to logical chassis cluster mode, while simultaneously changing its RBridge ID to 10 and its VCS ID to 35:

device# vcs set-rbridge-id 10 vcsid 35 logical-chassis enable

To convert a node that is in logical chassis cluster mode to fabric cluster mode, while optionally simultaneously changing its RBridge ID to 10 and its VCS ID to 35:

device# no vcs set-rbridge-id 10 vcsid 35 logical-chassis enable
NOTE
You can also use the no vcs logical-chassis-enable command without the option of setting the RBridge ID and VCS ID.
