Verification

In addition to the normal interface status and address resolution protocol entries, the QFX3500 supports a number of Fibre Channel–specific verification commands. These display the operation of the ports, the fabric, and the protocols used in the configuration. The first command we’ll look at shows the operation of the FCoE Initialization Protocol (the protocol that runs on the native VLAN). The command and its display are:

admin@ACME> show fibre-channel fip
Fabric Name : ACME-DRUG (100)
Member
FCF-MAC : 84:18:88:d4:d3:92 (Interface vlan.100)
Enode
Enode-MAC : 00:00:c9:1b:e4:a4 State : Logged-in
Session
VN_Port MAC : 0e:fc:00:05:00:01

This command shows that FCoE is up and operational and that the far end of the circuit is logged in. The MAC addresses are from the server (E node) and the virtual node ports of the QFX3500.
