HBA connected to both brocade and cisco


I have a Proliant server with one HBA (dual port), where one HBA port connected to Brocade fabric and another HBA port is connected to Cisco fabric.

Please anyone confirm is it a supported configuration by HP/Qlogic ? Any pointers/URLs?

Thanks.

hello,
use www.hp.com/go/spock to check HP matrix, but I have no idea about Cisco matrix, try their support pages.

Well... the card is likely to be supported by both SAN Switches individually.

Theoretically, I do not see any support issue as long as both environments are up to date with firmware/software/etc.

Now, that does not mean it is supported... I know it would work though. I have several servers connected to dual environments in my lab.


Hopefully, you wil get some good links/references.
