IEEE DCBX Administration Guide
The following configuration guidelines apply where DCB is used:
The default version of DCBX is CEE, so to use IEEE DCBX, you must set the DCB version to IEEE.
Configure the ETS based on the traffic types and bandwidth requirements.
The PFC priority set must match the peer's configuration, or the willing bit should be set for the switch to accept the peer's configuration. VLAN priority 3 is normally used.
Evaluate the following default settings table to determine if the default settings are applicable.
If SEFOS DCB is used as a pass-through for FCoE traffic, the port connected to the host CNA running FCoE and the port connected to a third-party FCoE switch must be configured to belong to the same VLAN as what is configured on the third-party switch.
LLDP system control status must be started before DCBX TVLs can be exchanged.
LLDP must be enabled for both transmit and receive, which is the default behavior.
To enable and configure SEFOS DCB, you must complete the following minimum tasks:
Enable DCB globally.
Enable the interface DCB feature that will be involved in DCBX exchange.
Configure the VLAN to DCB-capable ports if needed.
The SEFOS DCB accepts its configurations from the peer if the willing bit is set.
Refer to the Sun Ethernet Fabric Operating System CLI Base Reference Manual for the complete set of commands and the various options available for configuring DCB.
