Hello,did anyone use Compaq MA8000 (or RA8000) Storage Server under
Linux?If so, are FC switches and/or hubs supported with Linux?Mainly, if
MA8000 is supported, how many nodes can I connect to each of these
storage servers?I know they come with two double-channel FC controllers
(HSG80).Any help is welcome.Thanks in advance.Bye,Gianluca
