Not sure if this is the right community, but I'm trying to track down the answer to how many loops can a single FAS3040 controller have in a fabric metrocluster. I know the max number of shelves per loop is two but can't seem to find how many loops a single FC HBA can support on the 3040. I thought I saw something that said 18 but wasn't sure if that was correct or not.
Anyone know the answer to this one? If I add a second 2 port FC HBA to the 3040, I should then be able to increase my loops providing there are ports available on the switch, correct?

There are a couple of items that will effect the maximum number of disks in a Fabric MetroCluster (thus the maximum number of loops).
Hope this helps
