    SSCM version 3.0 or later is required for the HP SN6000 Fibre Channel Switch. SSCM version 2.0 and earlier versions do not support the management of fabrics that include switches with active TR_Ports and may disrupt communication between an HP SN6000 or 8/20q Fibre Channel Switch and the remote fabric.
  • Page 21 Be sure to configure the TR_Port before connecting the remote fabric to the HP SN6000 Fibre Channel Switch. If the remote fabric is connected to a port on the HP SN6000 Fibre Channel Switch that is not a TR_Port, the two fabrics may establish an E_Port connection and the local and remote fabrics may merge.
