    "Ready". If the server is turned on and they are not "Ready", the server will not be able to recognize the ETERNUS DX/AF storage systems. Also, when the ETERNUS DX/AF power supply is being controlled by a connected server, make sure that the ETERNUS DX/AF does not shut down before the connected servers. Similarly, the Fibre Channel switches must also be turned off after the connected servers have been shut down.

    The WWNs of Fibre Channel cards are necessary when a system error occurs, when server access to the ETER- NUS DX/AF is limited (such as when using the Host Affinity function), or when the ETERNUS DX/AF is connec- ted to the server via Fibre Channel switches.
