Each controller supports 16-Gbps Fibre Channel connectivity to host computers using LC-LC optical cables connected to a Fibre Channel switch. To eliminate single paths of failure, connect the ports on each controller to separate switches for redundancy.

Important: For important information and instructions about connecting to hosts, refer to the Open-Systems Host Attachment Guide.


Make sure the storage system is connected to your production network.

  1. Connect the Fibre Channel data ports on each storage system controller to your Fibre Channel switch.
  2. Connect your Fibre Channel switch to the Fibre Channel HBA card in each host computer or server.
