FC configuration for Windows overview
You can quickly set up the FC service on a storage virtual machine (SVM), provision a LUN, and make the LUN available using an FC HBA on a Windows host computer with the ONTAP System Manager classic interface (ONTAP 9.7 and earlier).
Use this procedure to set up FC service on an SVM if:
You are using traditional FC HBAs and switches.
This procedure does not covers situations where:
You have at least two FC target ports available on each node in the cluster.
Onboard FC and UTA2 (also called
CNA) ports, as well as some adapters are configurable. Configuring those ports is done in the ONTAP CLI and is not covered in this procedure.
You are not configuring FC SAN boot.
You are not using virtual Fibre Channel (VFC) with Hyper-V or ESX guests.
