In this lab, we get hands-on experience with an end-to-end converged solution employing Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) with the Dell Networking S5000 switch, We will touch all nodes of the solution: Dell PowerEdge server, CNA, Dell S5000 switch, Brocade 6505 Fibre Channel (FC) switch, and Dell Compellent storage array (1 x SC8000 Controller & 1 x SC220 disk enclosure). We will configure the Dell S5000 switch as a NPIV Proxy Gateway. Finally, we will test our FCoE and LAN connectivity via ‘ping’ and passing storage data to the Dell Compellent storage array.
- Estimated time: 25 minutes
