VMware SnapMirror with FCoE

EE,

I'm inquiring about using SnapMirror with FCoE because NetApp has documentation regarding requirements when using native fibre channel but haven't seen it for FCoE unless it sees this as IP ethernet (In order frames) and no additional steps are required?  We do use zoning with VSAN databses at both sites.

Is there documentation for our specific setup?

Thanks again everyone for your time

NetApp Snap Mirror is just a function of Mirroring the LUNs between NetApp filers.

It's setup is the same for all technologies that access LUNs and Volumes.

It does not exist now but it did last year. I can't remember what that was about which is why I wanted to delete the post. It would not help other viewers inquring about the same question unless your answer is (there are no differences or caveats when deploying snapmirror on a FCoE vs iSCSI infrastructure. Is that the case?

Snapmirror is a licensed function, which replicates a volume from one filer to another.

If you do not have a Snapmirror license it's not applicable.

Snapmirror is not applicable to a topology.

FC, iSCSI, FCoE, CIFS or NFS.

http://www.netapp.com/uk/products/protection-software/snapmirror.aspx

Snapmirror can be delivered via IP, FC, FCoE networks between filers.
