hi,

the HBA will automatically communicate with 2G.

We have lot servers with 4GB HBA but the switch are 2G, without any problem.

Hi,

We have the same situation, and our servers works fine with the 2GB san switches, even though we are connecting 2GB switch to 4GB switch for expanding the domain, and it works very well as this feature are in the san switch too.
