NetApp & Brocade: Lab. 1/6 - Basic NetApp FC Setup with Brocade Switch using CLI

*The following 6 posts are lab notes I jotted down during studying for the NCIE-SAN certification, and posted here for easy reference

1. Basic Single-Path FC Setup

To view the version of the switch OS
switch> version
To view the current nodes connected to the switch
switch> switchshow

To identify the onboard FC adapters
system> sysconfig
To view the current configuration of the onboard FC adapters
system> fcadmin config
To configure 0b and 0d as adapters, first need to down them (-d):
system> fcadmin config -d 0b 0d
To configure adapters 0b and 0d as targets:
system> fcadmin config -t target 0b 0d
Finally, reboot the storage system:
system> reboot

After reboot, add the FC service license:
system> license add FCCODE
Start the FC services:
system> fcp start

To view the current target adapters:
system> fcp show adapters
To just enable 0b port:
system> fcp config 0b up

To view the current nodes connected to the switch:
switch> switchshow

Windows: Configure FCP initiator and connect to switch.

To view the current nodes connected to the switch, then:
switch> switchshow

To verify the target can see the initiators HBA:
system> fcp show initiators

Single Path FC Connectivity Complete!

2. Expanding Basic Single-Path FC Setup to FC HA Multi-Path Setup

System1
To verify the worldwide node name:
system1> fcp nodename
To view the current target adapters:
system1> fcp show adapters
To enable 0d port on the storage system:
system1> fcp config 0d up
To view the current target adapters:
system1> fcp show adapters

System2
To verify the worldwide node name:
system2> fcp nodename
To view the current target adapters:
system2> fcp show adapters
To enable 0b port on the storage system:
system2> fcp config 0b up
To enable 0d port on the storage system:
system2> fcp config 0d up
To view the current target adapters:
system2> fcp show adapters

To view the current nodes connected to the switch:
switch> switchshow

Connect second host HBA to the Brocade Switch.

To view the current nodes connected to the switch:
switch> switchshow
