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:

  1. Delete the FC interface from the FC fabric to which it belongs:
    [edit]

    user@switch# delete fc-fabrics fabric-name interface interface-name



    For example, to delete the FC interface fc-0/0/3.0 from an FC fabric named sanfab1:

    [edit]

    user@switch# delete fc-fabrics sanfab1 interface fc-0/0/3.0
  2. Delete the FC interface from the switch [edit interfaces] hierarchy:
    [edit]

    user@switch: delete interfaces interface-name



    For example, to delete the interface fc-0/0/3.0 from the switch:

    [edit]

    user@switch: delete interfaces fc-0/0/3.0

The FC interface has been deleted from the FC fabric and from the switch.
