Key Points / Pitfalls

  • CFS Merge Master is lowest sWWN
  • device-alias, fscm and fc-redirect are CFS enabled by default
  • CFS over IP sends UDP keepalives using multicast 239.255.70.83 UDP port 7546 for discovery
  • Once discovered switches send distribution information via unicast TCP 7546
  • ipv4 or ipv6 CFS ip distribution can be enabled but not both
  • Don’t forget to enable “ip routing” if necessary on a switch that traffic is transiting two networks
