To define connections from the storage array to the FCoE switch, configure the IP Availability Manager to discover FCoE based IPStoragePath connections:
In the installation area where the IP Manager server is running, go to the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory and type the following command to open the user-defined-connections.conf file:
Add the following lines to configure the connection between the FCoE interface of the VNX system to the port of the FibreChannelSwitch.
# Following are a few examples. NOTE - the lines are commented, so the # discovery won't really try to make these connections. # # 192.168.1.200|Serial0|router2.smarts.com|5| # 10.64.1.1|2.4|Core-switch.smarts.com|2/4| # 192.168.164.78|10|10.31.10.134|12 10.31.10.137|10|mgt206056|12
Save and close the file.
