Modification
4.0(0)N1(1a)
This command was introduced.
5.0(2)N2(1)
Support for virtual Fibre Channel interface was added.

Usage Guidelines

This value must be the same in the ports at both ends of the ISL for Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) interfaces.

For virtual Fibre Channel interfaces, this command configures the FSPF parameters for the virtual E (VE) port.

Examples

This example shows how to specify a retransmit interval of 6 seconds after which an unacknowledged link state update should be transmitted on the interface for VSAN 1:

switch(config)# interface fc 2/1
switch(config-if)# fspf retransmit-interval 6 vsan 1
 

This example shows how to specify a retransmit interval of 3 seconds after which an unacknowledged link state update should be transmitted on the virtual Fibre Channel interface on VSAN 1:

switch(config)# interface vfc 5
switch(config-if)# fspf retransmit-interval 3 vsan 1
