We have new AFF A200 attached to our Cisco 6248 Fabric Interconnect and I can not get a link between the two.
I've swapped out the modules and cables more than once to elminate the physical connection.
I've configured both sides of FC and matched the speed.
I must be missing something inbetween that I can't figure out.
I'm used the OnTap SAN conifguraiton document for the commands to conifgure the SAN side.
This is the setting/config for one of the connections SAN side:

That SFP part number from the output of your display - "AFBR-709SMZ-NA2" is a 10Gbe SFP - confirm you're trying to use FCoE and not FC. For FC, you'll need a 16GB FC SFP and an FC capable switch - I don't think the Cisco FI is capable of native FC - you'd need a converged switch that can support FC, I believe. You should be able to do FCoE with that SFP.
