Previously, the destination MAC address validation was not checking for NPIV (N_Port ID Virtualization) addresses, which results in FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) frames being dropped. With this update, the destination MAC address check for FCoE frames has been modified so that multiple N_port IDs can be multiplexed on a single physical N_port.
