I have a couple of BladeCenter chassis connected to external fibre channel storage devices via a multi-port optical module on each chassis.
I have some Linux servers which have sata drives basically sitting idle and want to attach them directly to the fibre channel modules using an hba.
I know that Qlogic had a fibre channel HBA which could act as a target using an old Linux driver but am wondering if there have been any improvements since then, about 5 years ago. I thought I read somewhere that Centos 5/6 had a target driver as part of the default setup, nothing special needed.
Can anyone confirm, help me on this?
