Have 1 question, assuming 1 FC has 2 ports (port 1 & 2). I create 2 virtual FC cards on lpart. And map both virtual FCs to the same physical FC. So what will happen? They use the same port 1 or port 2 or first virtual FC uses port 1 and second virtual FC use port 2?

NAME
usoc - universal serial optical controller for Fibre Channel arbitrated loop (SOC+) device driver
DESCRIPTION
The Fibre Channel adapter is an SBus card that implements two full duplex Fibre Channel interfaces. Each interface can connect to a Fibre Channel arbitrated loop (FC-AL). The usoc device driver is a nexus driver and implements portions of the FC-2 and FC-4 layers of FC-AL.
