One can connect two V890s via 1Gbit FC cable. The FC cable has to be a "SC
to SC" cable and it has to be crossed. The price for such a third party
cable (2m long) is approx. CAD $70. 

Thanks and greetings


original question:

We have two identical V890s each with a 1Gbit FC port (onboard). I would
like to connect these two machines directly via the FC ports. Can that be
done, and if yes, do a need a 'straight' FC cable or would I need a
'crossed' FC cable? Would you know which type of cable I would need? I
have the choice from the following:
X9722A LC to SC FC Optical Cable, 2m
X9732A LC to LC FC Optical Cable, 2m
X973A SC to SC FC Optical Cable, 2m
