There are two different 4-port combo cards available, one with a 16GB FC personality and one 10GB iSCSI personality. With both you can set 1-port for RCIP traffic, but can the 3 other ports be used for either all FC or all iSCSI?

The combo cards are quad port cards consisting of dual port FC or iSCSI for block and dual port 10Gbe for file persona use.

If you use one of the file persona 10Gbe Nic ports for RCIP, then the other can't be used today. However the remaining 2 x FC or 2 x iSCSI can continue to be used.

In a nutshell you lose the remaining 10Gbe File Persona port per combo HBA when using for RCIP.

2 Ports are FC or iSCSI (1 & 2)
2 Ports on RCIP or FilePersona (3 & 4)
If you don't have 3.3.1 the OS did not see Port 3 & 4.
And if i remember correct, at the moment it is only supportet to use one RCIP Port per Node.
If the card is used for RCIP, it cannot be used for File Persona.

Example:
3.2.2 MU4
0:2:1 target ready - 123456789012 iscsi iSCSI N0-S2-P1-Host 1:2:1
0:2:2 target ready - 123456789012 iscsi iSCSI N0-S2-P2-Host 1:2:2

3.3.3 MU1
0:2:1 target ready - 123456789012 iscsi iSCSI N0-S2-P1-Host 1:2:1
0:2:2 target ready - 123456789012 iscsi iSCSI N0-S2-P2-Host 1:2:2
0:2:3 peer ready - 123456789012 rcip IP
0:2:4 peer offline - 123456789012 free IP
