HP DC SAN Backbone Director Switch and 1G HBA's?

Hi,

Can anyone tell me if 1Gb HBA's are supported on the 8G HP DC SAN Backbone Director Switch or if they'll even work with them?

 

 

Thanks,

D

Hello!

HP's DC SAN director is HP's rebranded Brocade DCX.

4G SFPs can do 1/2/4 Gbps.
8G SFPs can do 2/4/8 Gbps.

From http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/data_sheets/product_data_sheets/DCX-DS-08.pdf

"The Brocade DCX family supports 1/2/4/8/10Gb Fibre Channel"
