Configuring Fabric-Connected Devices

This chapter provides a high level overview of the steps used to configure fabric-connected (FC) devices. In the Oracle Solaris OS, FCAL, fabric, and point-to-point connected devices are made available to the system automatically. This feature differs from previous versions of the SAN Foundation software running in previous Solaris releases. In those versions, manual configuration steps were required to achieve fabric-connected device availability on the host. To find out how to manually configure fabric-connected devices, refer to Appendix A, Manual Configuration for Fabric-Connected Devices.
