Where do I stick my Fibre Channel terminators and how do I set the global address? I cannot find the dip-switches on my Qlogic HBA? Does SAN have dip-switches? How can you have a storage IO without dip-switches?

Skip, thanks for your excellent questions!

The dips are for chip-dippin' and switches are for, well you know, switchin' twitchin' and stitchin' in the kitchen. You can switch dips but you can't dip switches. You can stitch dip-switches by twitchin' them knobs in the kitchen. But if you fidgit too much with the digits, the switcher-diperoo gets all confused and you'll blow the gigabit gasket.
