TechHelp24,

Thanks for the answer. The link got me to a Fabric OS documentation page. I will drill down and see what I can find.

Thanks again.

Re: iSCSI - working with FC4-16IP iSCSI blade

OK. Here's the situation.  At my main site I'm running 2 x 48K with 3x48-port blades. Currently each server is dual-homed with 2 sperate Emulex HBAs each. Mangement wants to start using iscsi for "low end" servers to avoid incuring the cost of the HBAs. They want to use the 2 build-in GigE NICs on te server to access the storage (HP 24K). Before purcahsing the iSCSI blade I want to have an idea about how to implement it and what the requirements are. I went to both HP and Brocade's web site but only got generic (specs) but no real-world examples. I wanted to get a hodl of the manual so I coudl start getting familiar with it. If you have any information that you could share, that would be great.

Thanks again for following up.
