I am looking for the answer to the following questions: what is the purpose of the FC IO module in the DD2500 (or any other DD system) - is it only for VTL, or can be used for CIFS and NFS too, and where can I find the FC connectivity best practices?
Appreciate your input.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Due to the nature of your question, I just wanted to be sure that the essence of your question has not been lost, I appreciate that you have specifically said "FC" and that is the correct reply you have received from my peers here but is it possible that you actually have a dual port 10gbe optical card (which looks just like an 8Gbe FC card) in your DD2500?
If you have then this is indeed ethernet and CIFS/NFS DDboost are all possible but obviously it is not FC (but still has dual port LC connectors).
