How to run FCoE from Cisco UCS through VDX/VCS fabric?

Hello all.

I have a Brocade VDX/VCS fabric including FCoE licensing and a FCoE storrage connected to it.

Now I further have a Cisco UCS server system.

Is it possible

1. to connect a 10G DCB/FCoE interface of the UCS Fabric Interconnect switch (similiar Nexus5000) to a 10G interface of the VDX in the VCS fabric?

2. to run FCoE connections from the servers within the Cisco UCS through the Brocade VDX fabric to the FCoE storage?

What do I have to care about?

Thank you very much.

regards

Karl
