This wiki will show the basic initial steps to configure your Force10 S55 for use with iSCSI.

Start by configuring the management port of the S55.

Force10#config
Force10#interface managementethernet 0/0
Force10(conf-if-ma-0/0)#ip address A.B.C.D /24

 

Next configure the username/password.

Force10(conf)#username admin privilege 15 password 0 password
Force10(conf)#enable password level 15 0 password

 

Now configure the gigabit ports

Force10(conf)#interface range gig 0/0 - 47
Force10(conf-if-range-gi-0/0-47)#mtu 9216
Force10(conf-if-range-gi-0/0-47)#no shutdown
Force10(conf-if-range-gi-0/0-47)#switchport
Force10(conf-if-range-gi-0/0-47)#spanning-tree rstp edge-port
Force10(conf-if-range-gi-0/0-47)#flowcontrol rx on tx on
Force10(conf-if-range-gi-0/0-47)#exit

 
 
The above commands place all switch ports in the default VLAN. If you prefer to place ports in a non-default VLAN, refer to the documentation for your switch.
