FCoE configuration in Nexus 5K

Dear All,

After configuring FCoE, we are getting "Trunk vsans (initializing)             (VSAN NO.)". We have followed the below steps:-

1. "switchport mode trunk" for physical port where FCoE cable connected.

2. spanning-tree port type edge trunk

3. Allow respective VLAN including FCoE VLAN

4. VFC created.

5. Bind VFC with Physical Ethernet Port

6. VSAN is already added in VLAN

7. Associate VFC to VSAN

8. no shutdown command for VFC

we didn't install ESXi OS in that server.

Please check below config:-

XXXXXXXXX# show interface vfc 512
vfc512 is trunking
    Bound interface is Ethernet1/9
    Hardware is Ethernet
    Port WWN is XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    Admin port mode is F, trunk mode is on
    snmp link state traps are enabled
    Port mode is TF
    Port vsan is 501
    Trunk vsans (admin allowed and active) (501)
    Trunk vsans (up)                       (501)
    Trunk vsans (isolated)                 ()
    Trunk vsans (initializing)             ()
