Connecting a Dell B22 FEX to Nexus 6001 and storage

Hi Folks,

We have a setup where we are running a Dell B22 FEX in Blade enviornment and want to connect the B22 FEX to a cisco Nexus 6001 switch. As per NX-OS release note, B22 FEX and 6001 Nexus connectivity is supported.

Now after connecting to Nexus 6001, how do i get access to storage pool or SAN fabric ?  As per another thread of discussion, Nexus 6001 does not support direct fabric attachment at this point in time. So how do we bridge these two elements to a storage fabric ??

As per 6.02 release note:

"Support for DELL FEX


Added support for the Cisco Nexus B22 Dell Fabric Extender for Cisco Nexus 6000 Series switches starting with the 6.0(2)N1(2) release."

This is the exact reason we bought it. We have a enviornment where we are running Dell B22 FEX.  Idea is to connect the B22 FEX into Nexus 6001. We are confuse at this point. After connecting the Dell B22 FEX to Nexus 6001, how to access the storage network or storage fabric ??
