UCS connected to multiple FC fabrics?

Radek Kubka

Hi,

I *think* it is possible, yet I cannot find any diagram / documentation confirming this:

Is it OK to connect UCS Fabric Interconnect modules to more than one FC fabric? (namely 2 Brocade fabrics per module?)

Am I correct in my thinking that creating separate VSANs for each fabric should do the trick?

Thanks & regards,

Radek

Radek, yes it is possible. I did this recently at one of my customers, we connected a Brocade and QLogic fabric to both UCS FIs. We put the Brocade FC ports and vHBAs in one VSAN and he QLogic in the other. It was very cool because this allowed the customer to access both fabric from a single serer without having to ISL the 2 fabric together.

I have my lab UCS connected to both an MDS fabric and a Brocade fabric. Works great.
