Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Do not run software-based DCB or LLDP on CNAs that implement DCB. Some Combined Network Adapters (CNAs) implement the Data Center Bridging (DCB) protocol in firmware. The DCB protocol assumes that there is just one originator of DCB on a particular network link. This means that any higher-level software implementation of DCB, or Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP), must be disabled on CNAs that implement DCB.

Description Tom Coughlan 2010-06-22 21:44:25 UTC
Hi Ryan,

I realize this is late for Beta 2, and it is not critical for it to be in Beta 2, just as long as it gets in eventually.

Do not run software-based DCB or LLDP on CNAs that implement DCB.

Some Combined Network Adapters (CNAs) implement the Data Center Bridging (DCB) protocol in firmware. The DCB protocol assumes that there is just one originator of DCB on a particular network link. This means that any higher-level software implementation of DCB, or Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP), must be disabled on CNAs that implement DCB.

Hat Enterprise Linux Major release.  This request is not yet committed for
inclusion.

Comment 4 Douglas Silas 2010-07-14 21:26:57 UTC
Moving to the Storage Administration Guide as it contains Data Center Bridging information:

Comment 10 releng-rhel@redhat.com 2010-11-11 15:36:15 UTC
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
