Flexfabric config

I have got a C7000 blade with flexfabric module only. I know the SAN will use FcoE but my question is that do I need to define www name range( for example HP range) as I define the MAC address range in the network wizard? or where does the VCM get the www that is mapped to the MAC address for the FcoE physical function pf?

Re: Flexfabric config

FCoE doesn't leave the enclosure so the MAC for the FCoE connection doesn't really matter. By the time it leaved FlexFabric its straight FC and so the only thing your SAN will see would be the Virtual WWPN assigned from that pool.

If/when multi hop FCoE is enabled, that answer may change.
