Hi, We have a UCS 6100 and wanted to boot from a VNX 5300 directly connected via FCoE. My understanding is his cannot be done due to the FCoE multihop limitation. Also, we are not able to implement zoning on the UCS. The Nexus 5K has been sugested as a fix. But, please confirm:
1. Even with a Nexus 5K with FC module the UCS will still need a FC expansion module on the 6100 ,due to the multihop limitation, and terminate directly on the VNX 5300 FC port on the SP .
2. What version of NX-OS and Nexus 5K model supports Zoning?
3. Can I connect an HBA directly into the 5K FC ports and use the 5K FC ports as a switch fabric to the VNX 5300 FC SP port?
Hi, I did not get any response. However, it is working fine now. It was the
problem with the way our team configured WWN, tks.

It was complete oversight of my engineer. He has wrongly configured the WWN
of the VNX controllers in the Cisco UCS boot profile.

Does anyone have details on the zone configuration required for this type of configuration?
We have FCoE direct connection to CLARiiON CX4-120.
FC Modules were added to the 6120s and connected a single MDS 9124.
We want use the MDS for zoning only - not the data path.
The zone configuration will be the standard target-initiator configuration. The zone information from the MDS will then be pushed down to the FI.
