Does B22hp support FC uplink to Nexus 5K Unified Port, instead using FCoE to non-Unified Port

Does B22hp support FC uplink to Nexus 5K Unified Port, instead using FCoE to non-Unified Port? I only saw FCoE at the deployment guide.

 

To my understanding, FC only use 8Gb, FCoE can fully use 10Gb bandwidth. 

 

If it supports both FC and FCoE, Any other cons or pros?

 

Thanks!

Hi

The B22hp only supports FCoE (besides classical Ethernet), not native FC !

If you need FC on your host, you will install a CNA adaptor; your OS then sees classical FC; all tools for FC, e.g. Multipathing works as well unchanged.
