154 SAN Multiprotocol Routing: An Introduction and Implementation
Blade). We have two FC Routing Blades installed in the M48 Director, in slot 1
In our first example, we show how to set up the FCIP and LSAN using the CLI.
We use the SAN18B-R and the M48 FC Routing Blade in slot 1. In addition to
DS400 logical drives, we also provide access to a disk drive in a separate JBOD
Our second example demonstrates how to configure the FCIP and LSAN using
GUI tools. In this case, we use the SAN18B-R and the M48 FC Routing Blade in
FCIP setup with CLI
We configure an FCIP link between our 2005-R18 and an FC Routing Blade in
slot 1 of our 2109-M48, maintaining separate, distinct SANs, through the CLI
interface. We configure paths over our FCIP link using LSANs to assign disk from
the backbone SAN to our server located in our edge fabric.
Launch your favorite Telnet program. We use putty, a freeware program that can
easily be downloaded from the Internet.
We start our configuration on our edge fabric router, the 2005-R18, named
IBM_R18_SJC. This end of the link will end up being a VE_Port.
After connecting to the switch, we need to log in to it. After logging in, we run a
switchshow command just to verify the status of our switch and to ensure that we
connected to the correct one. In addition, we explain some of the output. If this is
your first time working with the Brocade router product, the port listing does need
explanation. Example 6-48 shows the output.
