Brocade 825 configure FCAL (FC Arbitrated Loop) for Direct connection to storage

Hi all, I have many servers IBM X3650 M4 with 2 Brocade 825 HBA dual 8GBs installed, and direct connect to storage HDS HUS110, because i don't have any san switch so must direct connect server to storage. In HUS110 Storage require loop topology (FCAL), but i cannot enable loop (FCAL) on brocade 825? I see in the spec of Brocade 825 have supported Topology "Point-to-point (N_Port), switched fabric (N_Port), including N_Port Trunking with frame-based load balancing, FC-AL, and FC-AL2" How can i enable fcal (loop) on brocade 825 adapter, tks your
