MSA2040 direct fibre connection with Fibre Channel Pass-Thru Module

Hi,

 

is it possible to conect directly (without FC switch) HP MSA2040 storage and  HP 4Gb Fibre Channel Pass-Thru Module for c-Class BladeSystem (i.e. HP BL 460c G8).

 

Thank you for your answers.

Re: MSA2040 direct fibre connection with Fibre Channel Pass-Thru Module

From quickspec:

The controller supports both direct connect and fabric (switch)
attach.

However, even with 4 FC ports per controller you are able to connect 4 servers each with a redundant path to the array, not more! So you can connect 4 blades servers maximum via the pass-thru module.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
