Easiest and Cheapest Fibrechannel setup in AIX for HACMP

I bought 4 Emulex LP9002 compatible aix cards, i would like to know what would be the cheapest way to get some fibrechannel storage. I dont care about the size or the speed. I do know that the lp9002 has an lc connection. I would like this mainly to setup a HACMP environment and i have 4 p510's where each of these cards are going in to. So this data needs to be seen across all the 4 machines ofcourse only when the volume group is imported.

I dont need this stuff to be brand new, used is fine as this is just for testing purposes.

Basicly to connect 4 hosts to a storage device you are going to need a switch and a storage chassis. There are some older storage arrays with 4 ports but these were usually copper.

Cheapest is probably getting some equipment on e-bay. Just have to be careful. I have purchased things like HBAs and cables that way for test purposes. Someday I need to try and sell some of my decomissioned equipment that way.
