Re: How to connect an MSL8096 to a SAN

one port is usualy used,
you can access from the second port only if you manualy manage to change the path from the host to the drive

this mean, at the moment there is no dualpath support for fc drive
you cannot have a host seeing the same drive from two path
there is no online failover capacability with backup application
