Unable to resolve ACI faullt Code: F0849

Hi,


I am trying to connect a Leaf switch (N9K-C93180YC-EX) to FI-A (UCS-FI-6332-16UP) on QSFP[40G] interface.

 

I have created vPC domain, vPC interface policy with Port channel a LACP active, leaf interface profile with port selector as 1/54.

But I am geting this fault F0849.

I found this doucment:

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/aci/apic/sw/2-x/syslog/guide/b_ACI_System_Messages_Guide/b_ACI_System_Messages_Guide_chapter_011.html

 

which states: "Fabric ports are not allowed to be configured using infra port selector."

Is the QSFP interface known as Fabric port and not the host port ?

 

 

Thanks,

Arjun B.

Hi Arjun,

 

There is a port conversion feature (uplink to downlink or vice-versa) available in ACI which is needed here.

 

But this feature is introduced from ACI version 3.1(1) only. So if you are running 3.1(1) or higher, then you can use 4 ports out of 6 uplink ports as downlink. Please note that port no. 53 and 54 cant be converted, so they will always we uplink ports.

 

Configuration steps would be like:

Fabric -> Inventory -> Expand Pod<#> -> Select Leaf-# -> Interface Tab (on right) -> Change Mode to Configuration(drop down on right side) -> Select Interface -> Click on  Downlink option above -> Submit(on pop up window)

 

Note: For this change to take effect, switch will require a reload. Be careful while making this change in production setup. You will also get the option of "Submit and Reload Switch" on the pop up window at the end.

Thanks for the update! Good to know that the issue has been resolved...

I am having the same problem - getting the same faults F0849, ACI 4.1(1j).

I have connected two FI-6332-16UP to ports 1&2 on 2x93180LC-EX (Leaf 1 and Leaf 2) via two separate LACP VPCs. The VPCs are formed and everything seems to be functioning. What is the downside of this?

 

Also, if I try to follow your directions, the Downlink button is grayed out. Should I be worried about it or just ignore it and continue with my life?:
