[Tom Elgin] "Can a single switch be called/considered a fabric?"

As far as Fibre Channel is concerned, a fabric is one or more switches.

[Tom Elgin] "When you connect two or more switches together, is it given a different name, or is it still called a fabric?"

That's a fabric.

[Tom Elgin] "Let's say you have a server with two HBAs, each HBA is connected to a switch (but those switches are not connected together). Would you say you have two fabrics, or a single switch fabric?"

That's one host connected to two fabrics.

Best,
Andy
