F Commands


This chapter describes the Cisco NX-OS interface commands that begin with F.

fabric-mode

To select the fabric mode, use the fabric-mode command.

fabric-mode {10g | 40g}

Syntax Description

10g-optimized

Sets the fabric mode to 10G.

40g-optimized

Sets the fabric mode to 40G.


Command Default

40G

Command Modes

Global configuration mode

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

None

Examples

This example shows how to set the fabric mode to 10G:

switch# configure terminal 
switch(config)# fabric-mode 10g 
 
   

This example shows how to set the fabric mode to 40G:

switch# configure terminal 
switch(config)# fabric-mode 40g

Description
   

feature lacp

To enable the Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), which bundles a number of physical ports together to form a single logical channel, use the feature lacp command. To disable LACP on the switch, use the no form of this command.

feature lacp

no feature lacp

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or keywords.

Command Default

LACP is disabled.

Command Modes

Global configuration mode

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

You must remove all the LACP configuration parameters from all EtherChannels on the switch before you can disable LACP.

Even after you enable LACP globally, you do not have to run LACP on all EtherChannels on the switch. You enable LACP on each channel mode using the channel-group mode command.

Examples

This example shows how to enable LACP EtherChannels on the switch:

switch(config)# feature lacp 
 
   

Related Commands

Command
Description

show lacp

Displays information on LACP.

show feature

Displays whether or not LACP is enabled on the switch.


feature lldp

The Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP), which is a neighbor discovery protocol that is used for network devices to advertise information about themselves to other devices on the network, is enabled on the switch by default.

Command Default

Enabled

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

You cannot enable or disable LLDP on a Cisco Nexus device. LLDP is enabled on the switch by default. However, the feature lldp command shows as part of the running configuration on the switch, as shown below:

switch# show running-config 
 
   
!Command: show running-config

The Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) is a device discovery protocol that runs over Layer 2 (the data link layer) on all Cisco-manufactured devices (routers, bridges, access servers, and switches). CDP allows network management applications to automatically discover and learn about other Cisco devices connected to the network.

To support non-Cisco devices and to allow for interoperability between other devices, the switch supports the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP). LLDP is a neighbor discovery protocol that is used for network devices to advertise information about themselves to other devices on the network. This protocol runs over the data-link layer, which allows two systems running different network layer protocols to learn about each other.

Command
Description

lldp

Configures the global LLDP options on the switch.

lldp (Interface)

Configures the LLDP feature on an interface.

show feature

Displays that LLDP is enabled on the switch.


feature port-security

To enable port security on Layer 2 interfaces, use the feature port-security command. To disable port security, use the no form of this command.

feature port-security

no feature port-security

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or keywords.

Command Default

Disabled

Command Modes

Global configuration mode

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

Use the port security feature to secure a port by limiting and identifying the MAC addresses of the switches that are allowed to access the port.

You can enable port security on a virtual port channel (vPC) port only if the following occurs:

Port security is enabled on both the vPC peers

Port security is enabled on the vPC port on both the vPC peers.

This command does not require a license.

Examples

This example shows how to enable port security on the switch:

switch# configure terminal
switch(config)# feature port-security
switch(config)#
 
   

This example shows how to disable port security on the switch:

switch# configure terminal
switch(config)# no feature port-security
switch(config)#

feature udld

To enable the Cisco-proprietary Unidirectional Link Detection (UDLD) protocol, which allows ports that are connected through fiber optics or copper Ethernet cables to monitor the physical configuration of the cables and detect when a unidirectional link exists, use the feature udld command. To disable UDLD on the switch, use the no form of this command.
