Fabric Zoning - Rules

A zone consists of multiple zone


members (devices)
Active Passive
Zone members in different zones can Zone- Zone-set
not have access to each other set
Zone members, however can belong
to multiple zones
Zoning is configured on a fabric wide
basis and replicated to all switches
Multiple zones in a VSAN are called a Z3 M4
zone set
M8
M3 M5
Only one active zone set per VSAN
M1 M7
A fabric can have multiple VSANs M2
M4 M6 M9
Each VSAN can have multiple zones
but zones cannot span across Z4

Inter-VSAN Routing (IVR):
Resilient SAN Extension Solutions
• Minimize the impact of change in fabric services across
geographically dispersed sites
• Limit fabric control traffic such as SW-RSCNs and Build/Reconfigure
Fabric (BF/RCF) to local VSANs
• Flexible connectivity with the highest availability
• Works with any transport service (FC, SONET, DWDM/CWDM, FCIP)

ISL PortChanneling
A PortChannel is a logical bundling of identical links
• Criteria for forming a PortChannel
Same speed links
Same modes (auto, E, etc) and states
Between same two switches
Same VSAN membership
• Treated as one logical ISL by upper layer protocols (FSPF)
• Can use up to 16 links in a PortChannel (32Gbps max)
• Can be formed from any ports on any modules – HA enabled
• Exchange-based in-order load balancing
Mode 1: based on src/dst FC_IDs
Mode 2: based on src/dst FC_ID/OX_ID
8 Gbps

PortChannel
Much faster recovery than FSPF-based balancing
• Given logical interface name with aggregated bandwidth and derived routing metric

Persistent / Static FC_ID Addressing
Requirements

Some operating systems like HPUX require static FC_ID


assignments to operate correctly
• Accomplished in the MDS 9000 using a persistent FC_ID cache
• Requires static domain_ID assignment
• Steps to configure static FC_IDs Static Domain_ID
0x7a
Change domain_ID of switch to static value
Change FC_ID allocation mode to ‘persistent’
All current FC_IDs become persistent
• Once in ‘persistent’ mode, static FC_IDs can be assigned
manually or continue to be dynamically assigned
• Enabled on a switch-by-switch-per-VSAN basis
