I checked with Product Management to confirm this. The BR1741-k is a CNA. Therefore it does not act as an HBA (native Fibre Channel adaptor). That said, we recently annouced our new Fabric Adapator product line. Fabric Adaptors provide NIC, CNA, and HBA functionality options on a single port, one function being active at a time. You can read more about Fabric Adapators at the Brocade 1860 Fabric Adaptor link on our Adapter's page.
I hope this helps ...
