NAME
fipvlan - Fibre Channel over Ethernet VLAN Discovery SYNOPSIS
fipvlan [-c|--create] [-s|--start] [-m|--mode fabric|vn2vn] interfaces fipvlan -a|--auto [-c|--create] [-d|--debug] [-s|--start] [-m|--mode fabric|vn2vn] [-l|--link-retry count] fipvlan -h|--help fipvlan -v|--version DESCRIPTION
The fipvlan command performs Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) Initialization Protocol (FIP) VLAN Discovery over Ethernet interfaces. fipvlan can be used as a diagnostic tool to determine which VLANs have FCoE services available on a network, prior to configuring VLAN interfaces and the Open-FCoE initiator. fipvlan can also be used to create VLAN interfaces as they are discovered, and to start the Open-FCoE initiator. The --create and --start options are primarily intended to be used as part of an Open-FCoE boot solution. FCoE instances started in this way cannot be destroyed or reset by fcoeadm. fipvlan takes a list of network interface names to run the VLAN discovery protocol over, or the --auto option to use all available Ethernet interfaces. fipvlan will enable any interface which is found disabled. If no response is received on that interface it will be shutdown again when fipvlan terminates. OPTIONS
-a, --auto Use all Ethernet interfaces currently available -c, --create Create network interfaces for discovered FCoE VLANs. If a VLAN device already exists for a discovered VLAN, a new VLAN device will not be created. -d, --debug Enable debugging output -s, --start Start the Open-FCoE initiator on discovered FCoE VLANs -m, --mode fabric|vn2vn Specify whether VLAN discovery is performed in the default fabric mode, or in VN2VN mode. -f, --suffix suffix Append the specified string suffix to VLAN interface names. -l, --link-retry count Retry check for link up to count times. The link state is checked every 500 ms. The default number of retries is 20. -h, --help Display a help message with basic usage instructions -v, --version Display the fipvlan version string VLAN NAMING CONVENTIONS
If a new VLAN device is created, it will have the name dev.vlan; where dev is the name of the Ethernet parent device and vlan is the discovered VLAN ID number. An optional suffix may be appended to this with the the -f command line option. EXAMPLES
Display all discoverable VLANs with FCoE services fipvlan --auto Discover FCoE VLANs on interface eth2, create VLAN devices and start the Open-FCoE initiator fipvlan --create --start eth2 In this example if FCoE services were available on VLAN 101 of network interface eth2, then a VLAN interface eth2.101 would be created and used as the parent device for the initiator.

NAME
fcnsq - Fibre Channel Name Server Query Tool SYNOPSIS
fcnsq host --gpn port_id [-q | --quiet] fcnsq host --gnn port_id [-q | --quiet] fcnsq host --gspn port_id [-q | --quiet] fcnsq host --gsnn wwpn [-q | --quiet] fcnsq ? DESCRIPTION
The fcnsq command performs Fibre Channel Name Server queries for a user-specified FC Host. The supported name server query commands include: Get Port Name (GPN), Get Node Name (GNN), Get Symbolic Node Name (GSNN), and Get Symbolic Port Name (GSPN) as described in FC-GS-3 for the Common Transport (CT) services. fcnsq takes the host bsg name as the input for the target host. Host bsg name must be a valid bsg device, e.g., "host12" as derived from /dev/bsg/fc_host12. For each name server query command, the argument is either a Port ID or a World Wide Port Name. Port IDs and World Wide Names must be specified in hexadecimal. To disable verbose output, use the --quiet option. OPTIONS
host --gpn port_id Get Port Name by Port ID for host. host --gnn port_id Get Node Name by Port ID for host. host --gspn port_id Get Symbolic Port Name by Port ID for host. host --gsnn wwpn Get Symbolic Node Name by World Wide Port Name for host. -q, --quiet Disable verbose output. ? Display a help message with basic usage instructions. EXAMPLES
Query Get Port Name (GPN) from host12 for Port ID 0xbf0027 fcnsq host12 --gpn bf0027 Query Get Node Name (GNN) from host12 for Port ID 0xbf0027 fcnsq host12 --gnn bf0027 Query Get Symbolic Port Name (GSPN) from host12 for Port ID 0xbf0027 fcnsq host12 --gspn bf0027 Query Get Symbolic Node Name (GSNN) from host12 for WWWPN 0x1000001B213C9DDA fcnsq host12 --gsnn 0x1000001B213C9DDA SEE ALSO
