The initial idea was to share FC over IP network. All nodes are ovirt nodes
One node see the FC storage share as a block device. Take this block device
and share it over iscsi to node.
The node will see the block device and create a new FC target to use it
I know, its science fiction...
I still don't understand the problem you are trying to solve.
Can you explain the network topology?
- Do you have FC storage server, switch?
- How many nodes to do you have with FC HBA?
Do you want to add nodes without FC HBA, and you want to consume
the FC storage?
Or you want to add nodes with FC HBA, but you don't have an FC switch?
After reading a bit on the subject another solution would be FCoE
this probably requires hardware.
Specific switches with DCB and FIP snooping which i don't have.
Any idea to extend FC to nodes without FC HBAs is welcome.
