Configure the Brocade 8000 Series Switch

The following instructions use port 1/3 as the example port and VLAN 101 as the example VLAN value.

  1. Before you configure the switch, download and install the latest firmware from:


    Caution - The Brocade 8000 Series switch is not designed for multi-hop FCoE. Thus, if you use an ExpressModule, the switch works only in the pass-through mode.

  2. Set the mode for the switch.
    # configure terminal
    # interface tengigabitethernet 1/3
    # switchport
    # switchport mode converged

    For the configure terminal command to function properly, you must have already executed the cmsh command.

  3. Activate the VLAN.
    # vlan classifier activate group 1 vlan 101
    # no shutdown
    # cee default
    # exit
