Howto configure the Linux kernel / drivers / fc4


FC4 device configuration

Fibre Channel supportEdit

  • Option: FC4
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Fibre Channel and FC4 SCSI support
      Fibre Channel is a high speed serial protocol mainly used to connect large storage devices to the computer; it is compatible with and intended to replace SCSI.
      This is an experimental support for storage arrays connected to your computer using optical fibre cables and the "X3.269-199X Fibre Channel Protocol for SCSI" specification. If you want to use this, you need to say Y here and to "SCSI support" as well as to the drivers for the storage array itself and for the interface adapter such as SOC or SOC+. This subsystem could even serve for IP networking, with some code extensions.
      If unsure, say N.

"FC4 drivers"

    • depends on FC4


  • Option: FC4_SOC
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Sun SOC/Sbus
    • depends on FC4!=n && SPARC
      Serial Optical Channel is an interface card with one or two Fibre Optic ports, each of which can be connected to a disk array. Note that if you have older firmware in the card, you'll need the microcode from the Solaris driver to make it work.
      To compile this support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called soc.


  • Option: FC4_SOCAL
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Sun SOC+ (aka SOCAL)
    • depends on FC4!=n && SPARC
      Serial Optical Channel Plus is an interface card with up to two Fibre Optic ports. This card supports FC Arbitrated Loop (usually A5000 or internal FC disks in E[3-6]000 machines through the Interface Board). You'll probably need the microcode from the Solaris driver to make it work.
      To compile this support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called social.

"FC4 targets"

    • depends on FC4


  • Option: SCSI_PLUTO
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) SparcSTORAGE Array 100 and 200 series
    • depends on FC4!=n && SCSI
      If you never bought a disk array made by Sun, go with N.
      To compile this support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called pluto.


  • Option: SCSI_FCAL
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Sun Enterprise Network Array (A5000 and EX500) if SPARC
    • depends on FC4!=n && SCSI
      This driver drives FC-AL disks connected through a Fibre Channel card using the drivers/fc4 layer (currently only SOCAL). The most common is either A5000 array or internal disks in E[3-6]000 machines.
      To compile this support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called fcal.


  • Option: SCSI_FCAL
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"Generic FC-AL disk driver"

    • depends on FC4!=n && SCSI && !SPARC
