Hi Olainen

Did you have to assign vmacs and wwns to the identity pool before this? Is that an absolute pre-requisite?

I have put together the config but not getting fcoe sessions. I have not created any idenity pools yet.

Hi Olainen

Even after adding the identity pools am not seeing the sessions. What are the troubleshooting steps?

So I managed to get one site working with FCoE. looks like you have to reboot the server to see the fcoe sessions. below is a sample config of the interface. 

interface ethernet1/1/9
description "LINK to Hosts"
no shutdown
fec off
switchport mode trunk
switchport access vlan 1
service-policy input type network-qos policy-Input-PFC
service-policy input type qos policy-Input-TrustDot1p
service-policy output type queuing policy-Output-BandwidthPercent
vfabric 2
priority-flow-control mode on
!

I partitioned the QL41262 with 2x FCoE and 2x LAN per hba. Theres new firmware on the Force10 site which I will get and update the Mx9116n tomorrow. theres also firmware on the dellemc support site but apparently that can break the switch.

I have seen on the S4148 config that ets mode on. not 100% sure if that improves anything so didnt include it.

This switch is so new theres literally no help online for it. Dell should have rolled out the training way ahead. The chassis management is also another story with the new update.
