No, this is not possible.
The Virtual Connect is kind of HBA multiplexer and requires a SAN switch to login the attached HBAs using NPIV.

For more info read the HP SAN Design Reference Guide staring on page 193 of the August 2010 edition.

This is just not possible!

VC FC REQUIRES an FC switch to be present!
