rp7410 and SAN connectivity

Hi there,

I'm looking to connect an rp7410 server to an XP12000 array. I've been asked by the SAN administrator if we can connect via QLE2460.. is this possible?

I can see the Tachyon XL2 HBAs are supported.. would QLE2460s?

Re: rp7410 and SAN connectivity

You need to use supported HBAs - the divers won't accept others. Copare to the matrix at http://docs.hp.com -> cards ... -> FC

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: rp7410 and SAN connectivity

You should use HP supported HBA's only... don't even think of using other HBA's!!!
There are supported Emulex and Qlogic-Adapters available... check the following lists:

Emulex: http://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=FibrChanl-02

Qlogic: http://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=FibrChanl-01

But there is actually no reason to not use your "old" HP developed Tachyon adapter...

My 2 cents,
Armin
