I was thinking about doing this a few years back for a domain that I
was doing volunteer support for--I had the opportunity to snag the SSA
from a place I was working at the time. I can't recall who gave me
the info, but I don't *think* there are any FW limitations. In my
research, I was warned more about overheating and power draw and
checked to find the 9G & 18G disks I was looking at putting in there
came in at lower power consumption *and* BTU output.
I'd think it's definitely worth a try if you have the parts. I'd
suspect that if there is a limitation, it's at the presentation layer
to the host, since the SSA and FC controller for this is not "really"
fibre channel in the standard sense, correct?
