Fiber Channel Adapters supported on HP L-Class Server (L 1000)

Hello,
Can any body tell me the supported fiber channel adapters for L-1000 server running on HP-UX 11.00. Also let me know the SC/LC cable products.
I need to connect this server to an existing FC-60 Storage.
Thanking yoy in advance.

Regards,

Take a look here:

http://docs.hp.com/en/FC_SM/FC_SM_june06.htm

a L1000 is basically a rp5430.

Well if you're connecting to a FC60, theres no point in looking at a 2Gb card - might as well use the old 1Gb card (A5158A). If ir rcall correctly this card had a SC rather than LC connector anyway.

A 5m LC-SC cable would be A7486A

Girish,
we are currently using a L1000 with a VA7100.
The FC adapters are HP5158_Tachyon_TL, they have an SC connector.
ioscan reports them as "HP Tachyon TL/TS Fibre Channel Mass Storage Adapter".
Programing is fun.

A5158A.

FC60 is an arbitrated loop device, but this card can operate in FCAL mode. Current FC drivers from any recent HP-UX media should recognize this card.

Ask for an SC-SC cable.
