• The lab setup referenced in this document was built and used for hands-on lab environments for several Dell events. This document was created to accompany the hands-on lab and is provided publicly for reference purposes.

  • In this lab, you will get hands-on experience with an end-to-end converged solution employing Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) with the Dell S5000 switch. You will touch all nodes of the solution: Dell PowerEdge server, CNA, Dell S5000 switch, and Dell PowerVault storage array. You will configure the Dell S5000 switch in Full Fabric Mode. Finally, you will test your FCoE and LAN connectivity via ‘ping’ and passing storage data to the Dell PowerVault storage array.

  • Estimated time: 30 minutes
