Brocade 425 (FC) HBA - what configurations do I'e to do to directly connect to a SAN?

Hello,

I would like to connect my Brocade 425 Fibre Channel (FC) HBA to a fujitsu fibrecat SX60 but the HBA doesn't see the fibrecat.

Do I've to change the port type becaus it's unknown?

What configurations do I've to to for direct connection?

Last August I had the same issue. It turned out to be a compatibility issue. Your case is the same. Your disk array is not supported for DAS connectivity.

Please take a look at the brocade compatibility list:

http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/interoperability/Brocade-HBA-CNA-Interoperability-Matrix.pdf

Go to page 9 (DAS Support).

The solution in our case was one of two:

1. Buy a switch and use it to connect HBA->switch->Disk Array

2. Change the HBA for a different one that will support your disk array.

Check with your Fujitsu representative so they can tell you what is the best solution for you.
