Does FCoE require 802.1q trunking?

Answered Question
Sep 13th, 2010

Since PFC in FCoE requires 802.1p CoS value, is it a requirement to use an 802.1q trunk for devices connected to a Nexus 10Gb Ethernet port?  There is a configuration command "priority-flow-control on" at the interface level.  Will this add the 802.1p value in the packet without requiring 802.1q trunking?

I have this problem too.

With FCoE, since there will be multiple VLANs on the link(for data and storage), you will need to trunk.
