Hello,

 

I have a question considering iscsi. Is it possible to pass iscsi traffic with FcoE?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: iscsi and fcoe

This is a very broad question. I am not sure what are you trying to accomplish here. but If you are referring to passing iscsi traffic along with FcoE traffic then its not possible different protocols , different hardware and infrastructure requirements.

 

Please see

However, note that Cisco nexus is a data center switch that supports both iscsi and FcoE.
