Single blade HBA to multiple fabrics

I need to configure my rack of blades to see multiple fabrics from the same HBA.  For example I have FAB_A, FAB_B, FAB_C & FAB_D.  Without merging FAB_A & FAB_C (or FAB_B & FAB_D )can I setup can I set it up so that all my blades have access to all the fabrics?  It doesn't look like I can do this but I'm hoping there is a way to have everything duel attached AND have access to all the fabrics.


Thanks in advance.

Re: Single blade HBA to multiple fabrics

if you only have two HBA ports on server, then you can only have server access to 2 fabrics defined in VC manager. you can't select multiple VC fabric to a single HBA port.
