Quick Start: Configure server hardware MAC address binding for FCoE server profiles

Prerequisites

In order to configure a SAN so that the server profile volume attachments are visible to the server hardware, you need to perform a binding configuration for each server hardware.

  • You intend to attach volumes to server hardware using FCoE

  • You have configured at least one FCoE connection in a server profile.

Procedure
  1. From the main menu, select SERVERS > Server Profiles.
  2. In the master pane, select the server profile that specifies the server hardware with an FCoE connection.
  3. From the View selector, select Connections.
  4. For each connection that you want to bind to a vfc interface, click the expander to display the details of the connection. Note the MAC address of the connection.
  5. Use SSH to bind the server hardware MAC address to the vfc interface on the vSAN. See "Adding a FCoE volume in a multi-hop FCoE environment" in the FCOE Cookbook for HP Virtual Connect for information on binding the server hardware MAC addresses to vfc interfaces on the vSAN.
