Deleting a Fibre Channel Interface
Before you delete a Fibre Channel (FC) interface, you must first delete the interface from the FC fabric configuration. This prevents configuration errors that would result if you deleted an FC interface from the [edit interfaces] hierarchy level but did not delete the interface from the FC fabric.
When you configure the switch as an FCoE-FC gateway, FC interfaces transmit and receive native FC traffic between the gateway and the FC switch. You can configure ports xe-0/0/0 through xe-0/0/5 as fc-0/0/0 through fc-0/0/5 and ports xe-0/0/42 through xe-0/0/47 as fc-0/0/42 through fc-0/0/47 to create one or two blocks of six native FC interfaces.
To delete an FC interface using the CLI:
- Delete the FC interface from the FC fabric to which it
For example, to delete the FC interface fc-0/0/3.0 from an FC fabric named sanfab1:
- Delete the FC interface from the switch [edit interfaces] hierarchy:
user@switch: delete interfaces interface-name
For example, to delete the interface fc-0/0/3.0 from the switch:
user@switch: delete interfaces fc-0/0/3.0
The FC interface has been deleted from the FC fabric and from the switch.
