Can you provide Packet Data size setting up to 15500?
seems to be limited now at 1408

FCoE is dead. There would be no updates.

Hello Anton,

I think problem with FCoE initiator was resolved by someone else..

If you have no more interest in supporting FCoE , maybe you can open source code :) for us to fix and use.

Anyway , thank you

Keeping in mind VMware is concentrating on object storage (feeding storage directly to VM bypassing block level and file system) and Microsoft does SMB3 and sees SMB3 as a future of a VM storage we can technically consider FCoE as a dead cow now. I don't know will we open our initiator and open source it (I doubt...) but we're definitely not going to invest anything into FCoE so far.
