Most systems have onboard FC adapters that you can configure as initiators or targets. You can also use certain FC adapter cards to configure as initiators or targets. Initiators connect to back-end disk shelves, and targets connect to FC switches or other storage controllers.
You should follow the instructions in this section to configure your onboard FC adapters as initiators or targets.
For additional configuration details, see the SAN Configuration Guide (called Fibre Channel and iSCSI Configuration Guide in Data ONTAP 8.1 and earlier).
