FCIP and Fibre Channel routing services configuration
The ports on the Brocade 7800 are initially set to persistently disabled.
If you want to enable the FC ports as a standard E_Port or F_port use the portcfgpersistentenable command to enable the ports.
If you are using the FC ports as EX_Ports you must configure the Fibre Channel Routing Services feature prior to enabling the ports.
The GbE ports can only be used once you have configured FCIP and enabled the VE_Ports.
See the Brocade Fabric OS Administration Guide for detailed instructions on configuring the Fibre Channel Router ports and GbE ports on the Brocade 7800.
