To enable the v2 mode in FC-Redirect, use the
enable command in configuration mode. To disable
the v2 mode in FC-Redirect, use the
no form of the command.
This command is used to increase scalability of FC-Redirect.
Disabling v2 mode after it is enabled in the fabric is not recommended.
However, if you want to disable v2 mode, you cannot disable it until all
FC-Redirect configurations are deleted. FC-Redirect configurations can be
deleted only by deleting all corresponding application configurations.
The MDS switches not running Cisco NX-OS 3.3(1c) and later cannot be
added to the fabric after the v2 mode is enabled. If the switches are added,
all further FC-Redirect configuration changes will fail across the fabric. This
could lead to traffic disruption for applications such as IOA, SME, and DMM.

that create FC-Redirect configurations.
If v2 mode is enabled in the fabric and you want to move a switch to
a different fabric, use the
decommission-switch command before moving the
switch to a different fabric. If the mode is not enabled, all switches in the
new fabric will be converted to v2 mode automatically.
Ensure that there are no fabric changes or upgrades in progress.

peer-switches command (UP state) to see all the
