Virtual Connect to SAN Switch

I think it is correct to connect one Virtual Connect to one SAN Switch (same Fabric), but is it possible to connect one Virtual Connect to multiple SAN Switches (different Fabrics)?

Hello,

 

Yes, you can connect.

 

I would request you follow the below documents for more clarifications.

Hi

I checked page 38 of HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric Cookbook .

It says:

Figure 35 - Logical View; Shows a single Ethernet uplink from Port X5 on Module 1 on the first network switch and a single uplink from Port X5 on Module 2 to the second network switch. Both Ethernet uplinks are connected to the same vNet, vNet-PROD. In addition, SAN Fabric FCoE_A connects to the existing SAN Fabric A through port X1 on Module 1 (Bay 1) and FCoE_B connects to the existing SAN Fabric B through port X1 on Module 2 (Bay 2)
 
 
Doesn't this mean that VCs need to be separated by Fabric?
