NVMe over Fibre Channel worksheet for Linux

You can use this worksheet to record NVMe over Fibre Channel storage configuration information. You need this information to perform provisioning tasks.

Direct connect topology

In a direct connect topology, one or more hosts are directly connected to the controller.

Switch connect topology

In a fabric topology, one or more switches are used. For a list of supported switches, go to the DE Series Product Support Site and look for the Interoperability Matrix document.

NVMe over Fibre Channel: Host identifiers

Locate and document the initiator NQN from each host.

Host port connections Software initiator NQN
Host (initiator) 1  
Host (initiator) 2  

NVMe over Fibre Channel: Target NQN

Document the target NQN for the storage array.

Array name Target NQN
Array controller (target)  

NVMe over Fibre Channel: Target NQNs

Document the NQNs to be used by the array ports.

Array controller (target) port connections NQN
Controller A, port 1  
Controller B, port 1  
Controller A, port 2  
Controller B, port 2
