Compatibility List

Compatibility List

This section describes the compatibility when the Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) device connects to the third-party network adapter, server, storage device, or switch.

Y indicates compatibility; N indicates incompatibility; N/A indicates that the function is not supported or there is no such a scenario. - indicates that interworking compatibility is not ensured.

NOTE:
  • Interworking compatibility is not ensured in the scenarios that are not listed in the following table.

  • Only the CE8860EI and CE6850U-HI support Fiber Channel (FC) interfaces.

The network adapter uses the built-in drive of VMWARE 5.5, and there are many problems about this network adapter. The network adapter goes online slowly, the rate is about half of the full bandwidth, and the disk cannot be found after the storage devices are registered with the FCF again. To solve the problems, upgrade the drive to 10.0.725.203.

The destination FC_ID in PLOGI packets sent by the network adapter is the FC_ID of the NPV switch, and the NPV switch directly discards the PLOGI packets. As a result, the host where the network adapter is installed cannot discover the remote host. Restart the host where the network adapter is installed. Then PLOGI packets do not use the FC_ID of the NPV switch as the destination FC_ID.

The Cisco switch used as the NPV switch does not respond to PLOGI packets with the FC_ID of the NPV switch as the destination FC_ID.

In FCF+NPV networking, it is recommended that members on the FCF join a zone in WWN mode.

  • When the FCoE-enabled device connects to the QLogic network adapter, the QLogic network adapter that does not receive responses retransmits FLOGI requests every 20s. The FCoE-enabled device enters the VLAN Request state after a period of time. That is, the link recovery period may be as long as 3 minutes.

  • When both the FCoE forwarder (FCF) and FIP snooping bridge (FSB) are used, the dual-homing networking is recommended. In single-homing networking, when the FCoE-enabled device connects to some network adapters, the link recovery period is long.

  • Data Center Bridging (DCB) parameters need to be manually set.

  • When the Intel X520-2 network adapter connects to an FCoE FCF, there is a low probability that the following problem occurs. After receiving FLOGI ACC packets, the FCF enters the VLAN Request state and does not send PLOGI packets. This problem is solved after the network adapter is disabled.

When the FCF connects to the Brocade 1020 network adapter, you must configure independent ETS priority groups for FCoE and iSCSI services and enable PFC for queues with priorities. Otherwise, DCBX negotiation may fail.
