WS-X4306-GB - Catalyst 4500 6-port GBIC Module & FC Tape Libraries

WS-X4306-GB - Catalyst 4500 6-port GBIC Module & FC Tape Libraries

I have several Tape Autoloader Libraries from Dell which have Fibre Channel interfaces. I have loop switches that these connect to today. I also have a Catalyst 4506 with a WS-X4306-GB - 6-port GBIC Module. I would like to use the X4306 as a loop switch. Some of the libraries can also connect via point-to-point FC.

Can this be done? If yes, how do I start in making this happen?

Thank You.

Sorry but the Catalyst 4500 does not support Fibre Channel connections on the WS-X4306-GB (or on any card). It's strictly an Ethernet switch. Reference

To mix and match Ethernet and FC interfaces, you'd have to be on a new platform like the Nexus 5k series - specifically the UP (Unified Port) variants.
