Pinned topic SAN06B-R FCiP configuration issue

‏2013-02-15T16:14:48Z |
I have a configuration where two V7KU are plugged in directly to SAN06B-R one at either site and the SAN06B does not have the FCIP routing licence(Thus no VEX Ports). I created a tunnel between the two switches (via VE_ports on ge0 of each router) and put the two switches in 1 fabric. The tunnel has come up, but the virtual port VE 16 stays offline even when I run # portenable 16. (see extract from switch show)

How do I make port 16 come online, what am I missing in the configuartion.

    You need FCIP license to get tunnel working.

    I'm having a similar issue, in my case I have 2 DS8100, but the behavior is the same, tunnel define in the config, you can ping between both switches, but still the port 16 keeps going offline and online.


    Also in the graphical interface I see the other end switch as "Undetected" trying to join the fabric but not succeding.


    Systemadmin, is that your case too? could you bring the tunnel up and workin finally?
