K580, A5158A & FC-Switch support

Hy everyone,
I have a K580 with an adapter A5158A.
I want to install hpux11i and I want to connect the box to an FC-Switch Connectrix EMC.
The driver for the fc-card support the FC-Switch connection?

Regards...
PSS

Re: K580, A5158A & FC-Switch support

The A5158A is supporting switched fabric networks, but this is a PCI card and doesn't fit into a K-Class server. Are you sure about the model?
You will need something like a A6685A (HSC bus connector) for your server.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

This driver is installed by default.

Get a list of your fibre channel device files:

# ioscan -fnCfc

Now get the the details for the device, e.g. /dev/td0

# fcmsutil /dev/td0 vpd

Post the results.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
