About the FC HBA port configurations

The NetBackup 5230 appliance add-in cards are available in five configurations. Several configurations include one FC HBA card for VMware, Optimized Deduplication over FC, or tape library connectivity.

Configurations D and E support FTMS. In these configurations Port 1 on each FC HBA card (1) in slots 5 and 6 are configured in Target mode by default when SAN Client Fibre Transport is enabled. Port 2 in slots 5 and 6 and all of the other FC ports are configured in Initiator mode.

All configurations support the appliance to work as a replication target for Optimized Duplication and Auto Image Replication. For more information about available HBA cards for target port use, refer to the NetBackup Appliance Fibre Channel Guide.
