is a SAN-switch a must if a single test machine/host should be connected (either by fast Ethernet, iSCSI or FC) to a FAS200 box ?
Thank 's for any feedback!
It is not a requirement, I have a FAS3140 direct connected to an HP DL380 (G something or other) via FC, and have had FAS270s connected direct via Ethernet previously. Just remember proper cabling, cross-overs and such.
