Virtual Connect FlexFabric with FCoE and iSCSI

Timo had a VC FlexFabric question:

 

*********************

 

Hi,

 

Is it supported to run single pair of FlexFabric modules with profiles having FCoE and profiles having iSCSI ? Or do I need dedicated chassis for FCoE and dedicated chassis for iSCSI ?

Sam replied with the info:

No problem, in fact I’ve demonstrated this in a demo rig used for shows.

You can mix FCoE and iSCSI networks in the same VC Domain.  The only restriction is both FlexHBA ports of the same adapter (i.e. – LOM or MEZZ), must be either configured for FCoE or iSCSI.  See possible combinations in chart below.

Also, as a general rule, if the VCM GUI allows the configuration to save without degradation, it’s supported.

Are you using the new VC FlexFabric module? Comments or questions?
