Summary of FCoE Configuration Tasks

Summary of FCoE Configuration Tasks

The device supports three Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) modes: FCoE forwarder (FCF), NPort Virtualization (NPV), and FIP snooping bridge (FSB). You can configure an FCoE mode as needed.

Table 2-1 describes the FCoE configuration tasks.

Table 2-1 FCoE configuration tasks




Configuring an FCF

An FCF supports both the FCoE and Fiber Channel (FC) protocol stacks. The FCF encapsulates FC frames into Ethernet frames and uses FCoE virtual links to replace FC links. The FCF connects a SAN to a LAN.

Configuring an FCF

Configuring NPV

A SAN allows a maximum of 239 switches. When more edge switches are required, NPV switches can be deployed.

Configuring an NPV

Configuring an FSB

An ENode and an FCF can establish a direct or remote connection. The FSB solves security problems in remote connection mode.
