For parameter descriptions and recommendations, see Parameter settings for QLogic QLA23xx adapters with driver level v5. By retaining the native Fibre Channel constructs, FCoE was meant to integrate with existing Fibre Channel networks and management software.

CNAs have one or more physical Ethernet ports.

So you want to test FC target mode? | FreeNAS Community

This page was last modified on 7 Augustat Joined Jul 25, Messages Thanks Fibre Channel is a gigabit-speed network technology primarily used for storage networking. Retrieved May 23, Contents 1 Overview 2 Hardware support 3 Enable target mode 4 targetcli 4.

For instance, for Linux initiator systems, use:. Archived from the original on March 4, Forums New posts Search forums.

Boot for the Fibre Channel Protocol User Manual for Emulex Adapters

FIP uses a dedicated Ethertype of 0x Thread starter jpaetzel Start date Jun 12, The Fibre Channel adapters that are supported for attaching the storage unit to a Sun host are capable of full-fabric support. Figure 2 shows the start lpfc auto-generated configuration. This page was last edited on 28 Novemberat Fibrre Septembera columnist was calling the technology “dead”.


I didn’t have to load any kernel module. Without saveconfigthe LIO configuration will be lost upon rebooting or unloading the target service, as the target configuration will revert back to the last saved one.

Fibre Channel over Ethernet – Wikipedia

By default, the upstream qla2xxx driver runs in initiator mode. Starting with Emulex driver for Solaris 6.

Don’t forget to use saveconfig! The following specifications are available as T10 Working Drafts:. Joined Aug 22, Messages 10 Thanks 1. This allows Fibre Channel to use 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks or higher speeds while preserving the Fibre Channel protocol. Can someone please provide just a basic walkthrough on how to set up fc-target with freenas?

Never fear, those QLogic FC4 variants are uber cheap to get.

A single 4-bit field version satisfies the IEEE sub-type requirements. Joined Aug 13, Messages 95 Thanks 6. I then followed JPs additional steps to enable FC target mode. You might want to add lines to probe for additional LUNs or targets, as shown in the following example: Taarget spec files define the fabric-dependent feature set, capabilities and available target ports of the specific underlying fabric.


RvdKraats Newbie Jun 16, Reserved bits are present to guarantee that the FCoE frame meets the minimum length requirement of Ethernet. Croft; Linda Elaine Eaton October 21, For parameter descriptions and recommendations, see Parameter settings for Sun-Emulex adapters on a Sun host. Gerasim Newbie Aug 23, Please report how it works in an XSAN env.
