Hi,


If I use a SFP-10G-SR transceiver in a Nexus 5500, can I have FCoE in this port?


Sorry for the question but i'm begining in the FCoE world


Thanks

yes, you can run FCoE over Ethernet transceivers. The only gotcha is if you want to run native Fiber Channel with native FC ports if you have a Universal Port chassis then we dont support it.


Thanks, Vinayak

Thanks Vinayak


I'm very excited to be working with Nexus switches. Currently we only going to use ethernet, but with the new servers will be able to use FCoE.
