FCoE based IPStoragePath is only supported in an environment where the VNX host and ESX host are connected via Fiber Channel Brocade 8000 switches. VNX host having sys oid "." is supported. The Brocade 8000 switch with Sys oid "." is supported. No other vendors are supported.

In the FCoE based IPStoragePath, the connections in the path are automatically discovered except for the final connection between the Fiber Channel switch and the storage array. To complete the final connection, you define interfaces on the storage array and define connections from the array to the switch.
