I have Brocade 825-E cards in my x3850 servers which when connected
directly to AMS2100 doesn't detect anything & HDS recommends to use
QLogic / Emulex HBA
Originally an ex-colleague proposed to our customer to get Brocade 825-E
together with EMC Clariion AX4-5 SAN but customer cancelled EMC SAN
(due to cost reason) & they bought AMS2100 from HDS instead.
Customer don't have enough FC switch ports. Going thru FC switch would
enable the Brocade 825 to detect AMS2100.
I need to establish if Brocade 825-E would work with EMC Clariion AX4-5
in the 1st place. Can anyone verify this?
The urls/links below doesn't quite specifically mention so:
Can someone recommend specific models of single-port (skip the dual
port models if possible) 8Gbps HBA cards that would work if directly
connected to AMS2100 (Emulex / QLogic models)
