hi guys,

im totally new to the whole xsan and fibre channel business. I just did a fresh install of snow leopard on a mac pro 3,1.

The fibre channel card gets recognized and even shows up in the sytem preferences of the mac under "Fibre Channel" with both channels of which one is connected indicated by the green light.

But under network settings no adapter shows up in which i could configure a ip or subnet etc.
even the disk utility shows me the vtrak 12TB storage which runs on the Xserve

i figure it must be some kind of driver issue or additional software im missing.

hope u guys can help me

Hi Josh, you don't configure TCP/IP on Fibre Channel, it runs it's own protocol and does not use IP addresses.
