See The Solution
Does not look like it's supported anymore.
Here's the doc - https://docs.netapp.com/ontap-9/topic/com.netapp.doc.dot-cm-sanconf/SAN%20configuration.pdf
"You cannot directly attach FC or FC-NVMe SAN hosts to HA pairs without using a switch." - page 13
"You cannot directly attach FC or FC-NMVE SAN hosts to single nodes without using an FC switch." - page 11

you can direct attached with iSCSI.
Thank you for quick reply . I am looking for FC connectivity
Correct. Was possible in 7-mode but the functionality needed in FCP is not supported with CDOT and always has been that way. A switch is required.
However, if you want, as mentioned iSCSI works perfectly fine as it will be a layer 2 network anyway. Chances are, you already have it networked either way.
