provisioning are decoupled, which enables the KMC to be
installed on a separate server from Fabric Manager Server (FMS).
In addition, new roles are available to allow separate
administration privileges. The new roles enable key management
to be handled by a security group instead rather than the SAN
administrators.

3.2(1a) Features
Description
N-Port Virtualization
The N-Port virtualization (NPV) feature reduces the number of Fibre
Channel domain IDs in core-edge SANs. Switches operating in the
NPV mode do not join a fabric, they just pass traffic between core
switch links and end-devices, which eliminates the domain IDs for
these edge switches. This feature is available only for Cisco MDS 9000
blade switches, the Cisco MDS 9124 Multilayer Fabric Switch, and the
Cisco MDS 9134 Multilayer Fabric Switch.
Digital Diagnostic

Description
New CLI Command to
Recover the Modflash
Partition
The infrastructure of the Storage Services Module (SSM) includes a
non-volatile modflash partition to store partner specific images and
configuration files. Any detectable partitioning and file system errors
are automatically repaired during the module initialization procedures.
However, certain types of file system errors cannot be auto-detected or
auto-repaired. Manual procedures might be required to recover from
these types of errors. This recovery procedure is destructive, since it
reformats and recreates the modflash partition. All data in the modflash
partition is deleted. SSM initial provisioning procedures need to be
followed for completing the recovery procedure. For these situations, a
new CLI command is included in Cisco MDS SAN-OS Release 3.2(1a).
The following example shows the debug mkfs modflash command.
switch# attach module slot

containing hundreds or even thousands of initiators. iSLB provides
the following features:
The iSLB initiator configuration is simplified with support for
initiator targets and auto-zones.
Cisco Fabric Services (CFS) eliminates the need for manual
configuration by distributing the iSLB initiator configuration among
all MDS switches in the fabric.
There is dynamic load balancing of iSLB initiators using iSCSI login
redirect and VRRP.
IP version 6 (IPv6)
Provides extended addressing capability beyond those provided in IP
version 4 (IPv4) in Cisco MDS SAN-OS. The architecture of IPv6
has been designed to allow existing IPv4 users to transition easily to
IPv6 while providing services such as end-to-end security, quality of
service (QoS), and globally unique addresses. IPv6 provides the
following enhancements over IPv4:
Allows networks to scale and provide global reachability.
Handles packets more efficiently because the IPv6 packet header
format is simplified.
Reduces the need for private address and network address translation
(NAT).
Provides simpler autoconfiguration of addresses.
