Which of the following statements about VE ports is not true?
- They connect to peripheral devices.
- They enable multihop FCoE topologies.
- They can be configured with multiple vSANs on a single port.
- They are enabled in trunk mode by default.
Virtual edge (VE) ports do not connect to peripheral devices. Virtual fabric (VF) ports, on the other hand, are Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) ports that typically connect to virtual node (VN) ports. VN ports are ports in peripheral devices, such as end hosts or disks. VE ports, on the other hand, are used to connect FCoE inter-switch links (ISLs). In other words, VE ports connect to other VE ports.
Because VE ports connect FCoE ISLs, VE ports enable multihop FCoE topologies. An FCoE hop is a connection from one domain ID to another domain ID. Therefore, a multihop FCoE switch is aware of multiple domains and can track and forward between them.
VE ports are enabled in trunk mode by default. In addition, VE ports can be configured with multiple virtual storage area networks (vSANs) on a single port. In order to configure multiple vSANs on a single VE port, you must configure each corresponding FCoE virtual local area network (VLAN) on the Ethernet interface to which the VE port is bound.
