Hierarchy Level

Original CLI

ELS CLI for Platforms that Support FCoE


The examine-vn2vn configuration statement is in a different hierarchy on the original CLI than on the Enhanced Layer 2 Software (ELS) CLI.


Enable VN_Port to VN_Port (VN2VN) FIP snooping on a specified VLAN. The VLAN must be a dedicated FCoE VLAN that transports only FCoE traffic. A VLAN cannot support VN2VN FIP snooping and VN_Port to VF_Port FIP snooping (VN2VF) simultaneously. Configure separate VLANs for VN2VN FIP snooping and VN2VF FIP snooping.

When you enable VN2VN FIP snooping on a VLAN, the VN2VF session filters are removed and the all existing VN2VF sessions are terminated.

The remaining statement is explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
