Just for the research, which OS can work from the box or with some 3rd-party software as a fc-target?

I know only the following: Solaris (currently only OpenSolaris+COMSTAR), Windows Storage Server.

Is that the only two above can?

Linux can do this also. See this question, which points you to SCST.

FreeBSD has support for using QLogic cards as FC Targets. See the ISP and Targ drivers. Other cards may works as well, though I don't know of any off hand.

NetBSD supported these drivers as well, though I do not know if they still do.

Openfiler support both target & initiator for FC (not FCoE).
