2 questions about MSA1000 SAN and its FC switc

I have MSA1000 in pair with StorageWorks 2/8q and 3 proliant servers with QLA200 adapters.

And i have 2 questions:

 

1 - I wanna implement SCST (centos 7 based) FC target - will it work with above equipment or its just for specific hardware?

2- Is it possible to insert some 4GB SFP into StorageWorks 2/8q? Currently it holds only Finisar FTRJ519P1BNL-H2 ones (which are 2GB). Asking because i am using QLA2460 on my SCST Target server which is 4Gb.

 

 

Thanks!

An MSA1000 is meanwhile around 15 years old.

 

The switches remain 2Gb/s, no matter what SFP is inserted. It probably needs the 2Gb/s SFPs to work.


Hope this helps!
