The emlxs host bus adapter driver is a Sun Fibre Channel transport layer-compliant nexus driver for the Emulex Light-Pulse family of Fibre Channel adapters. These adapters support Fibre Channel SCSI and IP Protocols, FC-AL public loop profile, point-to-point fabric connection and Fibre Channel service classes two and three.
The emlxs driver interfaces with the Sun Fibre Channel transport layer to support the standard functions provided by the SCSA interface. It supports auto request sense and tagged queueing by default. The driver requires that all devices have unique hard addresses in private loop configurations. Devices with conflicting hard addresses are not accessible.
The emlxs driver also supports the SR-IOV capability on the Sun Storage 16 Gb Fibre Channel PCIe Universal Host Bus Adapter. In the SR-IOV enabled mode, it supports the physical function and virtual function of the adapter. Point-to-point fabric connections are not supported in the SR-IOV enabled mode.
