How to use FC-MAP?

Hi All,

I understand FCoE. With Multi-hop FCoE, FC-MAP is used to create FPMA address for the CNA, so that CNA can use this address as source to encapsulate all FCOE frames, with FCF-MAC as destination address. I get this part.

But, how FC-MAP must be configured? Should it be different on differnt FCFs? Or it must be different on different SAN Fabrics? I am just confused on how this FC-MAP must be configued? I also read that if the FCF receives a frame with a mac address different from its FC-MAP, it will discard the frames etc. Is this something to keep the SAN-A, SAN-B traffic isolated at all times. I am from LAN background, trying to catch up with SAN

Just wanted clarification this...also can you point me to any good document on this and Storage VDC on N7K?

Thank you and Regards,
