The following topics briefly describe specific hardware and firmware features.

A.2.1 Hardware Loop ID

Each device communicating on an arbitrated loop requires an AL_PA, the Arbitrated Loop Physical Address. The host Fibre Channel supports a single hard loop ID in the range 0 - 125. The drive channel allows up to 125 devices to be connected to a single loop.

The controller supports automatic loop ID assignment on the drive channel. A hard loop address ID is assigned to the disk drives by setting the radial switch.

A.2.2 Firmware Host-Side Connection Mode

The controller default is "Loop Only" in "Host-side Parameters."

A.2.3 Firmware LUN Filtering (RAID-Based Mapping)

LUN filtering is a method used for separating and controlling access to data from the RAID controller. One major benefit of Fibre Channel is the capability to share a common storage pool with multiple servers or workstations. However, allocation becomes an issue when every server in a network can access the data in a logical drive. LUN filtering provides a means for controlling data access if data is not allowed for every server.

When you map a logical drive to a host LUN through the firmware application, you can create a mapping according to the worldwide port names (WWPN) that are specific to each host adapter. A LUN mask can then be created as an access filter for including or excluding host adapters from addressing specific storage unit. A host map is composed of an ID range that is configured to include one or more IDs. A host adapter can be identified by its ID (device-specific port names) as included or excluded from range. The LUN mask is also defined with a filter type as read only or read/write.

A.2.4 Firmware Redundant Loops

The selection of "drive-side dual-loop" is fixed. Since two channels are used to connect a group of physical drives, the two channels automatically assume the same ID address and operate in duplex mode.

A.2.5 Firmware Dynamic Load Balancing

The controller provides a mechanism to equally distribute I/O loads between channels in a redundant loop configuration.
