To Connect the Optical Cables

Note - The Converged Network Adapter does not allow normal data transmission on an optical link unless it is connected to another similar or compatible Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) product (that is, another Converged Network Adapter or FCoE switch using compatible short range optics).

Use multi-mode fiber-optic cable, intended for short-wave lasers, that adheres to the specifications listed in Converged Network Adapter Features and Specifications.

  1. Connect the fiber-optic cable, or cables, to an LC connector on the adapter.

    The following figure shows how to connect the dual-port adapter with fiber-optic cables.

  2. Connect the other end of the cable, or cables, to the FCoE switch.

    Note -  Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) cannot be used on the same port as FCoE or iSCSI.
