NPIV on redhat server


Hi

Quite new here, I want to enable NPIV on a physical redhat server. Is this possible first off? If so how can I do this.? My HBAs are compatible and can do NPIV, my switch too.

Thanks in Advance

Thank-You for the reply. I have another question. Would this work for a physical standalone server, that is to install Libvirt and create virtual hbas?
thanks again

I am not sure what you are talking about? Are you saying will it work on Virtual machines? If yes, then the document explains that it works on VMs.
