2 Gbps FCP Host Talking to 4 Gbps Netapp?

Hi All,

 

This is more of a general SAN/FCP question but does anybody know if there would be any potential issues with a host connecting to a SAN switch at 2 Gbps talking to our NetApp that is connected at 4 GBps?

 

The concern is that when the host needs to read data from a NetApp LUN the Netapp will attempt to send data back to the host at 4 Gbps which will cause issues because the host is connected to the SAN at 2 Gbps.  

 

Thanks,

MRJG
