[For Help]whether a HBA port can be assigned to more than one SAN fibres?

Peng needed some info regarding SAN and SAN HBAs in a c7000 chassis:

This is Peng from TECHub and sorry for disturbing you.

 

You know,

in a VC profile, I can assign more than one VLAN to a NIC port, for example, by tagged VLAN in VC-Ethe.

 

What about the VC-Fibre? Can I assign more than one SAN fibre defined in VC-Fibre module

to a HBA port?

Please DO NOT take storage into account, I just want to know whether a HBA port can be

assigned to more than one SAN fibres.

  

I think perhaps the answer is NO, but not sure.

Would you please tell answers if you know? Thanks in advance!!

Paul gave a very definitive answer:

A given HBA port can only be assigned to one SAN fabric.

Any other comments in this area? Has this imposed any SAN hardship on you? Let us know.
