The software components for FCoE are composed of two major components, the Ethernet base driver and the FCoE driver. The components are developed and validated as an ordered pair. Avoid scenarios, either through upgrades or Windows updates, in which the Ethernet driver version is not the version released with the corresponding FCoE driver.
Note - Individually upgrading or downgrading the FCoE driver does not work. The entire FCoE package must be the same version. Upgrade the entire FCoE package using Intel Network Connections only.
If you uninstalled the Intel Ethernet Virtual Storage miniport driver for FCoE, you must find the same version that you uninstalled and reinstall the driver. Otherwise, you must uninstall and then reinstall the entire FCoE package.
Intel and the storage vendors try to ensure that their respective products operate with each other as expected for every version that is released. However, given the large number of releases, you must use your storage vendor's support matrix to ensure that the versions deployed for the Intel Ethernet Protocol driver have been tested as an integrated set.
