Operating system or partition requirements
If you are installing a new feature, ensure that you have the software that is required to support the new
feature and that you determine whether any prerequisites must be met for this feature and attaching
devices. To check for operating system and partition requirements, see one of the following links:
v The latest version of enabling libraries and utilities can be downloaded from Fix Central
(http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/).
v IBM Power Systems Prerequisites (https://www14.software.ibm.com/support/customercare/iprt/
home).
v IBM SSIC (System Storage Interoperation Center)(http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/support/storage/

PCIe2 FH 4-port 8 Gb Fibre Channel Adapter (FC EN12, CCIN EN0Y)

Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the feature code (FC) EN12 adapter.
Overview
The PCIe2 FH 4-port 8 Gb Fibre Channel Adapter is a PCI Express (PCIe) generation-2, full-height,
high-performance, x8 short form factor plus (SFF+) Host Bus Adapter (HBA). This adapter enables
multiple logical (virtual) connections to share the same physical port. Each logical connection has its own
resources and the ability to be managed independently. Each port provides single initiator capability over
a fiber link or provides multiple initiator capability with N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV). The ports are
connected by using LC type connectors. These connectors use shortwave laser optics. The adapter
operates at link speeds of 2, 4, and 8 gigabits per second (Gb/s) and automatically negotiates to the
highest speed possible. LEDs on each port provide information about the connection status and link
speed of the port. The adapter connects to a Fibre Channel switch.
