Check if dcbx (uses lldp protocol) negotiation of fcoe, pfc, etc completes OK, that needs to happen before flogi can be sent by CNA. You can check on N5K cli and CNA gui. You can also use ethanalyzer on N5K cli to pipe captured pkts to a file for viewing in wireshark.
We found the issue working closely with Cisco and QLogic. The QLE8142 CNA *only* works with the QLogic SFP+ SR optic - period. Cisco twinax, nor the Cisco SR optic works. Suggest to order the QLE8142 WITH the optics.
