During the deployment of a project, the FC0 and FC1 ports of a host port module for the S5600 are connected to two Brocade 300E switches, and it is found that the status of the FC service ports switches between Unconnected and Connected. By checking the status of switches through the management interface of Brocade 300E, the status of the switch ports is insync (in synchronization), while the connections between the switches and the HBA of an AS are normal, and the storage device can be successfully connected to the HBA of the AS without connecting to any switches.
On the same host port module of the S5600 (and some other storage devices), the adjacent FC ports use the same FC chip. Thus, it is not recommended to connect such FC ports to FC switches simultaneously; however, you can connect them to ASs simultaneously.
