Customer wants to direct attach FC to Windows 2008 R2 server with two QLogic cards. Looking for KB/instructions to accomplish this if possible.
Currently have 0c from each of the two nodes connected to the QLogic cards on the Win box. As a test/control, 0d is connected to a Brocade switch. "fcadmin" shows all 4 ports online, but "adapter show -instance" only shows the ports connected to the Brocade switch as connected. What am I missing?

"Direct-attached configurations are not supported." See pg 11:
I don't think you'll get very far with direct attached NPIV.

Yes, they sent 16Gb SFP+ adapters for both the NetApp and the Windows box. I was assured that they would automatically adjust to the lowest common denominator (in this case, 8Gb).
