I have an implemetation to carry out. Basically it will be a Nexus 4000i via dac cables to Nexus 5548UP (FCOE connecion) and then from 5548UP connection to Storwize v7000 8GB FC ports .
The Blades on the Bladecenter have Qlogic 10Gb CNAs so FCOE to 5548UP and then FC to IBM V7000 Storwize.
Are there any design/deployment guides for this scenario?
I am assuming that the blade will host vm machine and thus multiple wwn.
Which device will see this and will therefore need npiv configured on it?
Is it the device that does the logins?
What mode will the 5k need to be in, I think in switching mode with the 4k in npv mode?
I have seen the flexpod design and is this scenario the same but with the 5k replacing the mds role and 4k replacing the 5k's role (attached hosts)?
Is this scenario all so similar to the sba mid datacenter delpoyment guide?
Will I need to configure qos and mtu on the 4ks and 5ks?
Will I need to configure the san channels between the 4 and 5ks?
Any help is appreciated
In the Nexus 5000, you will be binding vFCs to the MAC addresses and you do not need NPIV for this.
Nexus 4000 is a FIP snooping bridge and not an NPV switch. You will need to leave the Nexus 5548 in switching mode.
Refer to the following guide and it will answer most of your other questions.
