Seconded. I deployed Brocade SFP's from FiberStore and OM4 fiber from them as well. I have it going from a 1036 to the 226. Haven't done much testing other than link and pings.Yeah my Brocade SFP+s from the Fiberstore worked fine as well ( Didn't work in the Brocade cards but that is another issue )
There is a LOT more to FCoE than just regular ethernet packets. I would think it is pretty safe to assume that these switches would not work with FCoE at all.Simple Ethernet at 1G or 10G over a fiber cable is what I use it for.
that being said, I was under the impression that the point of FCoE was that it could use existing Ethernet hardware (including switches) so I know of no reason why you could not use this device as part of a FCoE deployment.
FC (as in the SCSI command based SAN protocol) is NOT supported.
