i installed esx 5.5 on a c220 M3 with VIC1225 connected via FCOE to 2 X nk5.
i nstalled netapp FAS2240-4 with FC connectivity to the same nk5.
after set the FCOE feature and configure the FC interface and did the vfc procedure in every switch i can see all the WWPN.
VSAN for now is the same in both switch but i will change it to be different.
i created only 1 zone between esx and netapp and i cant see that netapp recieved a FC login request from server.
my concern is that the VIC caard is not configured correctly or there is a FCOE issue.
does anyone with a VIC1225 experiance this kind of behavior in the implementation?
If I understood it correctly, you have installed ESXi on storage local to the server but trying to access to data luns ( datastores ) from your SAN array. Is that correct ?
If yes, please provide following information
From CIMC, adapter information
1) NIV enabled or disabled ?
2) FIP enabled or disabled ?
3) Default VLAN configuration ?
show run int eth x/y
show run int vfc X
show vlan fcoe
show int vfc x/y
Is this straight through configuration or links from VIC connects to both N5K in vPC mode ?
Can you please provide interface configuration of N5K switch ports that are connected to VIC adapter ?
NIV ( VNTAG ) information is available in CIMC > Inventory > Cisco VIC adapters > General > Modify Adapter properties > enable VNTAG mode.
