|Oracle Solaris Administration: SAN Configuration and Multipathing Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
The Solaris FCoE initiator is a pure software implementation that is designed to work with normal Ethernet controllers. However, you must comply with the following limitations of Solaris FCoE implementations:
FCoE ports cannot be used for booting.
FCoE ports cannot be configured in Oracle VM Server for SPARC or Oracle VM Server 3.0 for x86 guest operating systems.
FCoE is supported in fabric and point-to-point topologies.
FCoE is not supported on all hardware. FCoE works with Ethernet controllers that support 802.3x PAUSE and jumbo frames, and have a GLDv3 driver.
