Not supported.

See HP C-SERIES FC SWITCH CONNECTIVITY STREAM in www.hp.com/storage/spock

EVA 4400 with embedded switch not supported directly connected to C-series FC Switches

Re: how to connect MDS9124 to EVA4400

are u sure it is not supported?it is wonderful, because HP say you can configure hp blade c7000 with MDS9124 SAN Switch or brocade.how can accept that this server can not connect to another HP product (EVA4400 with embeded switch) directly?

HP created the SPOCK web site to address all questions about compatibility. Before purchasing or setting up anything, you have to check that it has been tested by the labs and guaranted to work.

There are thousands of examples of HP products that are not compatible with each other. Even given two products, it depends on the firmware versions.

That's what SPOCK is for.

Hi Dear friend
i found this link:
http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=110&prodSeriesId=3611391&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=3611391&objectID=c01681497
it said EVA 4400 not support directly connect to C-series switches because, if you want to connect B-Series to C-Series switches you must change interopmode on brocade switch to 1.But,brocade 5410(embeded switch on eva4400) not support interopmode1.

thank you for your help
