UTA2 ports can be configured as FC target/initiator or CNA (FCoE arget/Ethernet) mode. Both ports must be configured for the same mode and use same SFP+ type. Refer to the Cables link in this table to view supported SFP+ modules or copper twinax cables used in FC or CNA mode. X1143A cannot be used for cluster interconnect on this platform. UTA2 ports are not supported for connectivity to DS14 shelves. To connect to DS14 shelves, use the X1132A-R6 or X2054A-R6 FC adapters.
UTA2 ports are not supported with IBM tape devices. Direct connection to tape drives with UTA2 ports are supported on HP, Quantum, and Tandberg tape devices,
other non-IBM tape devices require a FC switch between the UTA2 port and tape drive.
We are not doing direct connection, we are using a brocade backup san.
