I’m here because I saw an excellent vid on Youtube
discussing making a DIY switch.
What I’m hoping to do is make something similar to a Cisco 6248 or 6332 but quieter and using less power (and cheaper, as I only need a handful of ports). What I wish to do is control/read/write fiber-channel tape drives over a 10GBE ethernet network with FCoE.
Obviously, I need CNA HBA’s in my workstations and the DIY switch, as well as at least one FC (or “universal” card like a Brocade BR-1860) that will accept fiber tranceivers and “talk” to the tape drives using the FC protocol “unbundled” from the ethernet frames.
But when I go to the Vyos knowledgebase, and search for FCoE, I get no hits… or for FC, either.
So… can I use Vyos to bridge between 10GBE FCoE ethernet ports and 2/4/8/16G FC ports? Could someone steer me to the relevant documentation?
