What's in This Version
What's in This Version
The following information is for version B.11.23.01 of the driver for the HP A6826A Dual Port Fibre Channel
Adapter.
Features
The A6826A is a dual port 2 Gb/s-capable Fibre Channel adapter that operates in PCI 33Mhz/66Mhz and
PCI-X 66Mhz/100Mhz/133Mhz bus speeds with a 64-bit bus width.
Each port supports Auto-Speed Negotiation, and is independently capable of a 1 Gb/s or 2 Gb/s data transfer
rate. Auto-Speed Negotiation allows each port on the adapter to automatically negotiate the highest speed
that is common to the port and to the infrastructure connecting the port.
The fcmsutil diagnostic tool can be used to display link speed and other VPD (Vital Product Data)
information.
The A6826A dual port adapter is capable of Online Addition and Replacement (OL*). OL* refers to the ability
of a PCI card to be replaced (or added) without shutting down and rebooting the system. See your system
hardware documentation to determine if OL* is supported. For detailed information about OL*, see the
Interface Card OL* Support Guide. You can view, download, or print it from http://www.docs.hp.com.
