Hi All, 

I have converted a qlogic cna 8324 (8362)  from FC to CNA but i see the port status showing ofline.

May i know what is the configuration needs to be done on the switch side ? To support the CNA type.

Yes you need to use an approved SFP. If that's not a 10Gb SFP it won't work.

I think you want 

ifconfig e0g  up

ifconfig e0h up

 

May want to confirm SFP is 10GbE as well.

Have you rebooted ?,   the change is in effect after rebooting the node.

confirm that you have the good SFP+, there is a difference between FC and ETH...

SFP on the Netapp side showing it supports 4,8 and 16GB speeds (Last screenshot in my post) . Whereas my switch side is a 10Gb SFP If this is the case i cannot use it because the switch end SFP is 10G ?

Hello NAYABSK,

 

When you use a CNA, you are working with Ethernet speed (10GBPS). The speed on the SFP of 4-8-16 GBPS is FC speed. So my guess is that you have the wrong sfp in there.... Do you want to do FCoE with your Setup ?

So you need the ethernet SFP+ (10 Gbps) because fcoe is encapsulating the fc frames inside ethernet frames.  Be sure to adjust the MTU .,..

Sorry for the delay, were you able to get the fcoe going ?
