Replication between 2 storage is depends on FCIP switch, that takes extra layer and dependency.
Plaase check how to configure without FCIP switch.
Sure maybe try replication via iSCSI?
I'm not sure what the question is. Is it perhaps that you dont have fibre connectivity between sites?We have different 'feature' cards that you can install on the storage array to potentially help you get around the limitations.
FC Connectivity exist, though it have mandatory to connect in FCIP switch for remote storage connection.
We don't have FCIP switch. How to remove decency of FCIP switch
I'm not sure what you need. Could you perhaps draw it out with the models that you have?
You can also direct connect potentially? If it's a stretched fabric then you can just Zone the connectivity. But if you have only network connectivity. You'll have to use an FCIP switch OR you can use iSCSI feature cards on the storage array.
The details and comments so far does not tell us what you have or what you'd like from this community post(What's your question, if you have a question). Might be best to reach out to your local Hitachi Vantara sales offices and get a pre-sales engineer to help you architect a solution.You can also look up a value added partner here, that might be able to assist with your question in person, in your local language: https://partnerlocator.hitachivantara.com/
There is Network connectivity. we have contact to Pre-sales team as per them FCIP switch require.
This setup would require (assuming that Network Switch = IP switch) iSCSI ports in the storage systems, or as you yourself noted FCIP switch at both ends (like Brocade 7850 https://www.broadcom.com/products/fibre-channel-networking/extension/7850-extension-switch)
