NC373F Multi-function enable HBA?

Afternoon.

Have a DL360 with existing dual NC373i NICs. Installed 2 x NC373F multifunction cards to enable connection to a Brocade SAN Switch and MSA Controller, but cannot get the NC373F cards to behave as anything but NIC's.
i) What do we need to do to enable the cards to behave as HBA's and
ii) How do we retrieve the WWN's of the cards?

Thanks.

"cannot get the NC373F cards to behave as anything but NIC's."

Thats because they ARE Nics!

You need to buy Fibre HBA Cards for your server in order to connect to a Fibre switch.

Official options for the DL360 (Im assuming G5)are as follows...

HP StorageWorks FC2142SR 4Gb PCI-e HBA


A8002A

HP StorageWorks FC2242SR Dual Channel 4 Gb PCI-e HBA


A8003A

HP StorageWorks FC1142SR 4Gb PCI-e HBA


AE311A

HP StorageWorks FC1242SR Dual Channel 4 Gb PCI-e HBA


AE312A

HP StorageWorks FC2143 4 GB PCI-X 2.0 -to-Fibre Channel HBA


AD167A

HP StorageWorks FC2243 Dual Channel 4Gb PCI-X 2.0 HBA


AD168A

HP StorageWorks FC1143 4Gb PCI-X 2.0 HBA


AB429A

HP StorageWorks FC1243 Dual Channel 4Gb PCI-X 2.0 HBA


AE369A

Once connected, you can get the WWNs of the cards from the switch zoning config.
