Hi all.
I've having 3 Dell R710, 2 HP DL 360 G5, 3 IBM x3650 and
Now, i've buy 1 Cisco San Switch MDS 9124 and 1 Hitachi AMS2100 and 7 Qlogic QLE220.
Is it possible to use Qlogic QLE220 on my servers to connect to Cisco MDS 9124 ?
I will run just single path.
Regards.

Hi, I don't think the device is certified for IBM. However, i read it in a internet forum that some one managed to make it work. If you have warranty on the device probably you can speak with the provider to replace it with a certified device.

It's 2nd and it's impossible to replace them. So i think i'd to use QLE220 on Dell and HP, QLE 2460 for IBM server.
Is it possible?
