I'm configuring a SAN fabric FC between an MDS 9148 and a Nexus 5048 which is carrying FCOE from a Nexus 4000 in a bladecenter with blade server's having Qlogic CNAs.
Naturally,I have portchannels between MDS 9K and Nexus 5K and between Nexus 5K and Nexus 4K.
The problem is that there is no communication between the servers and storage!
The switches configurations are attached.
I 'm wondering if it's mandatory to activate NPV?
Any other suggestions?
