Max FC-HBA and PCI Slot Capabilities for rp8420 and rp7400 Servers

Anyone knows:

1.) Maximum number of FC-HBAs supported on rp7400 and rp8420?

2.) On rp8420 - which slots are "proper" for FC-HBAs (2G or Combo GigE/2GFC)

3.)On rp7400- which slots are "proper" for FC-HBAs (2G or Combo GigE/2GFC)

Thanks!

rp7400 - 6 A6795A in the even (2,4,6,8,10,12) numbered slots

rp8420 - 16 cards of any kind in any slot

Thanks Joshua!,

We'll be hitting that count on a rp7400 that serves as our backup server (to push the split mirrors to 2ndary storage - tape/VTL/SATA)..

Will the remaining slots be able to handle GigE/1000BT cards?

I've never seen or heard of an issue with rp7400s and GigE cards. I don't know if they support the combo cards because the rp7400/N4000 server does not accept PCI-X cards (as far as I know).
