General Notes

Due to interoperability issues between Data ONTAP and the HP Interface controllers used in the ESL E-Series and EML E-Series libraries (dual Fibre Channel port models), only devices presented behind FC port 0 will be accessible to the hosts. Please note that this issue does not affect configurations with Ultrium 1840 drives.
