Re: SFP on FAS2020

A FAS2020 should have 2-4 ports of

1,2,or 4 Gb/s FC interfaces depending on if your configuration is single or dual controller.

It should be LC as well, but I believe you would not need to actually purchase an SFP seperately, it should come with it -- did you check?

Hi,

Yes FC means FCP only.

By any chance you have FC Host Attach Kits as well. I don't think without it you will get SFP's unless they are separately configured with Disk Shelf.

Re: SFP on FAS2020

Do you intend to say that you want to connect the FAS 2020 direc

tly to the server ??,i think that should be possible ,but you might require SFP on the FAS 2020 to do the FC connection.

Re: SFP on FAS2020

Hi,

This is the part no. you can order X6539-R6 ( It's a 4Gbps SFP Module)

You can order this to any re-seller of NetApp, primarily from where you got the FAS2020.

l.augeard -

I think that people have gotten off track with this.

To answer your question directly, the part you need is a Finisar SFP, Model FTLF8524P2BNV.  These are readily available.  This is the origional manufactures part number, and it is OEM by NetApp as X6539.

Good luck.
