Do you have any additional HBAs? With only the onboard ports you cannot make redundant paths to more than 2 fabrics and without redundant paths to each fabric you cannot fullfill best practice.

Yes, i have additional HBA in this 3par 8200. So redundancy to all fabric will be fulfiled, but i just wonder if that is supported because I cant find in the cabling documents scenario with four separate fabric connection.

Of course it supported.

Just make sure partner ports are in the same fabric.

Supported. As Mammagut mentioned, make sure partner ports are on the same fabric if you want port persistence feature to work.
