Can Any pls help me to guide through how can i workout the TL2000 in Windows 2008 R2 server.
The issue you are running into is that with the Brocade FC HBA it doesn't support direct connect. That leaves you with a couple of options. If you use either a Emulex or Qlogic HBA you will be able to direct connect the TL2000 to the HBA. If you want to use the Brocade FC HBA then you will need to have a FC Switch in between the TL and the controller. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
