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
