FX8-24 crossport and FCIP routing

  • 1.  FX8-24 crossport and FCIP routing

    Posted 05-26-2018 09:58 AM

    Hi Experts,

    I am configuring FCIP using FX8-24 blades. FOS is 7.x I am also using xge1 as a cross port.
    And I have following questions.
    Q> by using xge1 as cross port, VE ports 22-31 will be available for xge0 right?

     

    Following is the sequence of commands to assign IP and create tunnels

     

    portcfg ipif 7/xge0 create 192.168.1.151 255.255.255.0 1500
    portcfg iproute 7/xge0 create 192.167.1.151 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1
    portcmd --ping 7/xge0 -s 192.168.1.151 -d 192.167.1.151

    portcfg ipif 7/xge1 create 192.168.1.150 255.255.255.0 1500 -x
    portcfg iproute 7/xge1 create 192.167.1.150 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 -x
    portcmd --ping 7/xge1 -s 192.168.1.150 -d 192.167.1.150
    portcmd --ping 7/xge1 -s 192.168.1.150 -d 192.167.1.151 -x

    portcfg fciptunnel 7/22 create --remote-ip 192.167.1.151 --local-ip 192.168.1.151 -B 6000000 -c auto
    portcfg fcipcircuit 7/22 create 1 --remote-ip 192.167.1.150 --local-ip 192.168.1.150 -B 6000000 -c auto

     

    Does it look correct?

     

    Q> when I create iproute I am using destination port IP address instead of network address as shown in admin and cli guides

    as per admin guide


    portcfg iproute 8/xge0 create 1.1.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 192.168.11.250

     

    While I am using
    portcfg iproute 7/xge0 create 10.26.1.151 255.255.255.0 10.46.1.1

     

    Where 10.26.1.151 is the IP address of destination interface

     

    Will it work? or does this have to be network ip address as given in brocade guides?

    --->>>Q> by using xge1 as cross port, VE ports 22-31 will be available for xge0 right?

     

    is correct.

     

    In 10 Gbps mode, you can also configure VE_Ports 12 through 21 to use port xge0 as a crossport and VE_Ports 22
    through 31 to use port xge1 as a crossport.

     

    about Tunnle cretae and Ip assign:

     

    --->>>portcmd --ping 7/xge1 -s 192.168.1.150 -d 192.167.1.150

     

    for portcmd --ping command, when crossport is configure, you have to use the --crossport operand, in example:

     

    "portcmd --ping 7/xge1 -s 192.168.1.150 -d 192.167.1.150 --crossport"

     

    the same for portcfg -iproute,

     

    --->>>portcfg iproute 7/xge0 create 192.167.1.151 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1

     

    in example

     

    "portcfg iproute 7/xge0 create 192.167.1.151 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 --crossport"
