The PCIe2 FH 4-Port 8 Gb Fiber Channel adapter (FC 5729) is a high-performance adapter based on the Emulex LPe12004 PCIe Host Bus Adapter (HBA). FC 5729 is a generation-2 adapter and is supported on systems that support the generation-2 adapters. The adapter provides four Fiber Channel ports. Each Fiber Channel port provides single initiator capability over a fiber link. The ports have LC type connectors and use shortwave laser optics. The adapter connects to Fiber Channel switches and operates at link speeds of 2, 4, and 8 Gbps. The adapter automatically negotiates with the switch to the highest speed of which the switch is capable. LEDs on each port provide information about the status and link speed of the port.
