Can any one advise on this:
Does IBM support Direct Attached connectivity with storage between 2x power servers with 4 vios each using dual port FCS i.e.
An early help will be appreciated.
Thanks for the reply, my another question is if we can use NPIV with this storage or revert back to old method of using VIOS VSCSI methodology?

The NPIV remark is on storage side, not P-Series.
No action required here, you can leave NPIV enabled, but there will be no added value of NPIV feature on storage :
The advantage of having NPIV enabled on storage will only be visible when everything is connected via SAN switches.
On P-Series (VIOS) you can do NPIV mapping as usual.
