FlexFabric FC Load Balance

Hi Guys.
I would appreciate your help to clarify a doubt I am having.

Is it possible to optimise the available bandwidth on the FC links from two FlexFabric modules to external brocade switches? We are looking for installing two active links (rather than active/passive) and carry traffic with load distribution. I wouldn’t like to manually associate profiles with specific ports, I am interested in a round robin login scenario (or least utilised link) with the available ports.

If NPIV round robin login requests are supported, is there any HP documentation to support it?
Thanks

O. G.,

I have yet to get satisfactory information on this.

You can get some hints by logging into the fabric switch (Brocade) and displaying the NPIV connections. If I read this right, there is no load balancing.
