The FC-FC routing service provides Fibre Channel routing (FCR) between two or more fabrics without merging those fabrics. With virtual fabrics, physical switches can be partitioned into independently managed logical switches, each with their own data, control, and management paths.
In this chapter, we discuss the issues that arise when combining the functionality of routing within a virtual fabric environment.
