The controllers provide the ports that are required to connect to an optional SVP, external drive trays, systems, and other devices.

A controller contains Fibre Channel ports, iSCSI ports, or both. The number and type of ports available for host connections vary based on the controller model.
  • Fibre Channel SFP adapters are used to connect to your Fibre Channel switch and hosts.
  • iSCSI ports come in optical and copper (RJ-45) interfaces, and are used to connect to your Ethernet switch and hosts.
Each controller also has:
  • A SAS port for connection to an external drive tray.
  • An RJ-45 10/100/1000 bps user LAN port for performing management activities.
  • An RJ-45 10/100/1000 bps maintenance LAN port for diagnostics.
