Surestore 2/20,4/40/6/60

Are the F/C model of these units support F/C hubs?

Hi,
It depends on what you mean. I have used a 2/20 library connected to a Vixel 1000 FC-hub for some time and not had any problem with it but, in general it is not recommended to use librarys in loop (hub) topology. The reason (if I remember correct)is that LIPs can cause SCSI-resets. For example if you connect/disconnect a device.

Yes, the 2/20 family product originally released with only Arbitrated Loop (aka hub) support. Follow-on versions of the fibre interface boards added direct connect fibre and fabric login support.
The journey IS the reward.
