Check out the latest Dell S5000 converged switch video which demonstrates FCoE with the Dell S5000 converged switch and the Dell PowerEdge M1000e chassis w/ MXL blade switch. The Dell S5000 switch is configured in NPIV Proxy Gateway mode and the Dell MXL blade switch is configured for FCoE Transit. Additionally, the FCoE and LAN connectivity is tested by sending LAN and SAN traffic from the Dell PowerEdge M620 blade server. Multipathing over dual fabrics is also demonstrated by logging into the Fibre Channel switches and observing the FC traffic passing over both fabrics. Just see the second video posted on the following page on Dell’s website here, Dell Tech Center YouTube channel here, or just see the video directly below.
