HP BLc 4G Virtual Connect FC and two storage connectivity

Hi

I have to connect two different SAN fabrics to a single blade server ( One SAN is connected to EVA4100 and the other SAN is connected to EMC DMX3). My blade server is conected to a C7000 enclosre with one dual port FC HBA. The C7000 enclosre is having two HP BLc 4G Virtual Connect FC modules. These virtual connect modules are connected to the EMC DMX through a brocade SAN switch. I wanted to connect the EVA also through a different SAN switch to the same virtual connect modules. Is it possible to access both the storages from the blade server using the above setup.

thanks and regards

Yes you can do this. What VC firmware version are you running as you may need to upgrade?

in broacade switch zone both the fabrics with the same wwpn number, which you get from virtual connect server hba profile (you will get this virtual wwn numbers in profiles).
