To support a software FCoE boot process, a network adapter on your host must have a specially configured FCoE boot firmware. When you configure the firmware, you enable the adapter for the software FCoE boot and specify the boot LUN parameters.


  • In the option ROM of the network adapter, specify software FCoE boot parameters.
    These parameters include a boot target, boot LUN, VLAN ID, and so on.

    Because configuring the network adapter is vendor-specific, review your vendor documentation for instructions.
