Re: HP StorageWorks 8/8 (8) Full Fabric Ports Enabled SAN Switch

you can work with 3 sfp or even 2

but this solution will bring you some sort of single point of failure(SPoF)

I understand that you have only one switch and this is also a SPoF,

in a noSPoF state you should need 2 switches each connected to one of the controllers and one port of the host,

I hope I could clarify.
