I currently manage DCX based Brocade directors. We are getting a VDX6740 switch to connect some servers to greenplum using FCOE. I don't have any experience with the VDX switches or FCOE for that matter. Can someone briefly list some of the steps that I will need to follow to properly configure the switch and be able to setup FCOE on it. Any help in this matter will be really appreciated.

1. Make sure you have FCOE license installed on 6740 switch.
2. You have to configure "fcoeport default" on ports your host is connected to :
interface TenGigabitEthernet 102/3/10
fabric isl enable
fabric trunk enable
3. you can verify if the device is logged in by chekcing through :
show fcoe login
FCOE-Port Eth-port Device WWN Device MAC Session MAC
The abover command shows the devive's eth port and wwn .
