Hi ,
using the consloe.

fcadmin config command returns configuration information about all of the embedded FC adapter(s) on the filer. Embedded FC adapters always appear in slot 0. If no embedded FC adapters exist, the fcadmin config command is not supported and an error is returned.

fcadmin config

Local
Adapter Type State Status

0a initiator CONFIGURED. online
0b initiator CONFIGURED. online
0c initiator CONFIGURED. online
0d initiator CONFIGURED. online

Additional cards are hard wired as targets on initiators (I think)
