DESCRIPTION DESCRIPTION
The fipvlan command performs Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) Initial ization Protocol The fipvlan command performs Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) Initia lization Protocol
(FIP) VLAN Discovery over Ethernet interfaces. fipvlan can be used as a d iagnostic tool to (FIP) VLAN Discovery over Ethernet interfaces. fipvlan can be used as a d iagnostic tool to
determine which VLANs have FCoE services available on a network, prior to configuring VLAN determine which VLANs have FCoE services available on a network, prior to configuring VLAN
interfaces and the Open-FCoE initiator. fipvlan can also be used to creat e VLAN interfaces interfaces and the Open-FCoE initiator. fipvlan can also be used to creat e VLAN interfaces
as they are discovered, and to start the Open-FCoE initiator. The --cre as they are discovered, and to start the Open-FCoE initiator. The --c

options are primarily intended to be used as part of an Open-FCoE bo options are primarily intended to be used as part of an Open-FCoE boot

instances started in this way cannot be destroyed or reset by fcoeadm. instances started in this way cannot be destroyed or reset by fcoeadm.
fipvlan takes a list of network interface names to run the VLAN discovery protocol over, fipvlan takes a list of network interface names to run the VLAN discove ry protocol over,
or the --auto option to use all available Ethernet interfaces. or the --auto option to use all available Ethernet interfaces.
fipvlan will enable any interface which is found disabled. If no respon se is received on fipvlan will enable any interface which is found disabled. If no response is received on
that interface it will be shutdown again when fipvlan terminates. that interface it will be shutdown again when fipvlan terminates.
OPTIONS OPTIONS

-c, --create -c, --create
Create network interfaces for discovered FCoE VLANs. If a VLAN device already exists Create network interfaces for discovered FCoE VLANs. If a VLAN devi ce already exists
for a discovered VLAN, a new VLAN device will not be created. for a discovered VLAN, a new VLAN device will not be created.
-d, --debug -d, --debug
Enable debugging output Enable debugging output
-s, --start -s, --start
Start the Open-FCoE initiator on discovered FCoE VLANs Start the Open-FCoE initiator on discovered FCoE VLANs
-m, --mode -m, --mode
fabric|vn2vn Specify whether VLAN discovery is performed in the def ault fabric mode, fabric|vn2vn Specify whether VLAN discovery is performed in the defau lt fabric mode,
or in VN2VN mode. or in VN2VN mode.
-f, --suffix suffix -f, --suffix suffix
Append the specified string suffix to VLAN interface names. Append the specified string suffix to VLAN interface names.
-l, --link-retry count -l, --link-retry count
Retry check for link up to count times. The link state is checked eve ry 500 ms. The Retry check for link up to count times. The link state is checked e very 1000 ms. The
default number of retries is 20. default number of retries is 20.
-u, --link-up
Leave link up if a FIP response has been received.
-h, --help -h, --help

VLAN NAMING CONVENTIONS VLAN NAMING CONVENTIONS
If a new VLAN device is created, it will have the name dev.vlan; where d If a new VLAN device is created, it will have the name dev.vlan; where de
ev is the name of v is the name of
the Ethernet parent device and vlan is the discovered VLAN ID number. An the Ethernet parent device and vlan is the discovered VLAN ID number. A

EXAMPLES EXAMPLES
Display all discoverable VLANs with FCoE services Display all discoverable VLANs with FCoE services
fipvlan --auto fipvlan --auto
Discover FCoE VLANs on interface eth2, create VLAN devices and st art the Open-FCoE Discover FCoE VLANs on interface eth2, create VLAN devices and star t the Open-FCoE

In this example if FCoE services were available on VLAN 101 of network In this example if FCoE services were available on VLAN 101 of networ
interface eth2, k interface eth2,
