Effective December 3 - NetApp adopts Microsoft’s Business-to-Customer (B2C) identity management to simplify and provide secure access to NetApp resources. For accounts that did not pre-register (prior to Dec 3) access to your NetApp data may take up to 1 hour as your legacy NSS ID is synchronized to the new B2C identity.

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9.x
  • FCoE
  • SAN
  • Cisco Nexus 5k Switches
  • Quality of Service (QoS)
  • Class of Service (CoS)
  • Data Center Bridging (DCB)

Answer

Any changes made with regards to QoS/CoS/ DCB on Cisco Switch should reflect immediately on NetApp Storage. There is no specific configuration change required from ONTAP.

Additional Information

Use dcb show command on ONTAP to verify the settings.

Example:

run -node <xxxx> -command dcb show
