The product information talks about 8Gb fibre connection features, but my Xserve has the 4Gb fibre card. How does this affect compatibility?

  • You can plug this directly into the FC card. You may need to force its connection speed to 4Gb (and loop mode, point to point might work, but is generally only used for switch connections). The only compatibility issue is that 8Gb devices can't do 1Gb, so long as you run your 4Gb card at 2Gb or 4Gb, you'll be fine.
