SAN: connection

Hi,

1) This is related to the SAN (Storage Area Network)
2) I saw at a company the followings:
-ExchangeA --> 192.168.100.6
-ExchangeB --> 192.168.100.7
-FileServerA --> 192.168.100.16
-FileServerB --> 192.168.100.17
-BackupSrv --> 192.168.100.25
-HP MSA2000(Left) --> 192.168.100.66
-HP MSA2000 (Right) --> 192.168.100.67
-HP FiberswitchA --> 192.168.100.36
-HP FiberswitchB --> 192.168.100.37
3) I believe the SAN are HP MSA2000 (left) and HP MSA2000 (right)
4) I believe the management console of the SAN is at the BackupSRV
5) I believe the SAN are used by ExchangeA, ExchangeB, FileserverA and FileserverB
6) The things that I am confused related to the Cable Connection of the SAN
7) My questions:
First: What cable connection between the SAN and ExchangeA & B
2nd: What cable connection between the SAN and BackupSrv
3rd: What cable connection between the SAN and FileserverA & B
4th: What cable connection between the SAN and HP FiberswitchA & B
8) Would you give your best assumption or judgment please
9) Thanks

Wouldn't the fiber switches connect all servers to the san and vice versa?

1) I am not sure ....
2) What about normally in the production environment?
3) If the fiber switches connect all servers to the SAN, that means The SAN has many fiber ports --> What is the maximum fiber ports an HP MSA 2000 can have?

4) What is the function of HP FiberSwitch A & B? (I saw many fiber cables there)
