I would like to know if i can directly attach a standalone server with 10G CNA to the UCS 6100 10G port and it login to the switch. For example the way we do with c5020 switch. In the 6100 CLI config guide i have not seen any command like binding a vfc to a physical eth int or VSAN FCoE VLAN association.
Also can any one please explain at present how it works? I see from config guide it connects to the Blade chassis below. I guess the hardware where 10G ports from 6100 are connected is a fabric extender sitting on the blade chassis.
If i have a fabric extender connceted to 6100 and let my server connect to the FEX, will that work? I am just trying to learn connectivity point of view.
This video is helpful but it did not answer many Qs i have related to appliance port configuration.
As my FI is independent POD, i dont need End-Host mode right ? At least on the Fabric side. In the LAN side i guess it does not matter ? Can any one correct me please ??
Also once i configure the applicance port, where the appliance port will log in ? I did not see a show flogi database command. Besides i am not sure, if the UCS FI can work as FCF? Am i expected to see Discovery Advertisement that usually FCF sends to VN_port? How about LLDP? Can it negotiate LLDP with the appliance port which has SP-MA supported CNA.
