  order to successfully provision storage?

Interview Answer

1 Answer


1) Fabric - Insure FC cabling is connected end to end between Target and Initiator ports either direct connect or via fabric switches. If connected via fabric switches, you should create\configure alias's for each respective target and Initiator port and then create a zone which these alias's are made members of. Add these new zones to the active config and then activate the config.

2) Array - on the array itself you will need to configure LUN Masking (Host Group, Initiator Group, etc.) associating: particular array port WWPN\s with Initiator (host) WWPN\s and desired LUN\s they should be able to see.
