We are making a connection from our Dell servers to our Nexus 5010 switch using 10GB Twinax for a FCoE setup.

We may have to use 10GB LC Fiber instead.

My question is, does the medium matter when transfering 10 gigs of data? or will their be gotches from our standard 10GB copper configuration? I thought FCoE required the twinax. If we use LC Fiber will we need specific drivers on our CNA cards?
