The qlc host bus adapter driver is a Sun Fibre Channel transport layer-compliant nexus driver for the Qlogic ISP2432, ISP2500, ISP2600, ISP8100, ISP8200, and ISP8300 adapters. The adapters support Fibre Channel SCSI protocol, point-to-point fabric connection and Fibre Channel service classes two and three (see NOTES section below).
The qlc 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 ISP2500, ISP2600, ISP8100, ISP8200, and ISP8300 - based host bus adapters do not support FC-IP topology. FL-AL topology is not supported with the ISP2600, ISP8100, ISP8200, and ISP8300-based host bus adapter. Only the ISP2432 supports FC-IP protocol.
