FCOE Notes


Yum / dnf can be used to install the FCOE pre-qusites on Fedora-derived distributions:

$ yum install fcoe* lldp*

To create a new interface file you can copy /etc/fcoe/ifcfg-ethX to /etc/fcoe/ifcfg/ifcfg-. To enable the itnerface at boot time you can set the ONBOOT flag to yes.

The following commands will enable the data center bridging daemon:

$ /etc/init.d/lldpad start
$ chkconfig lldpad on

The dcbtool utility can be used to enable data center bridging and FCOE for an interface:

$ dcbtool sc ethX dcb on
$ dcbtool sc ethX app:fcoe e:1

Ifconfig can be used to bring up a new interface:

$ ifconfig ethX up

The fcoe init service can be used to start the FCOE services:

$ /etc/init.d/fcoe start
$ chkconfig fcoe on

To view teh active FCOE configuration you can use the fcoeadmin utility:

$ fcoeadmin -i
