Hierarchy Level


Set the maximum number of FCoE initialization protocol (FIP) session logins permitted for an individual NP_Port interface in an FCoE-FC gateway fabric (FC fabric) or for the entire FCoE-FC gateway fabric. You can set a maximum FIP session limit for each NP_Port interface connected to an FC switch. You can also set a maximum FIP session limit for the entire FC fabric. The sum of the maximum login sessions permitted on the NP_Port interfaces in an FC fabric should not exceed the maximum login sessions configured for that FC fabric.

The maximum number of FIP sessions (the combined total of all VN2VF_Port and VN2VN_Port sessions on the system) is 2500 sessions.
