  • Page 189: Configuring Zoning

    Configuring Zoning This chapter provides instructions for configuring zoning. Zoning defines the communication paths in a fabric. A zone is comprised of a collection of initiator and target ports within the SAN. The ports in a zone can only communicate with other ports in that zone.

  • Page 190: Zoning Limitations, Zoning Parameters Supported Limits

    Configuring Zoning Zoning Limitations HAFM has the ability to configure large zone sets, including up to 1024 zones and 1024 end ports in a single zone set. Table 14 shows the supported limits for the edge switches and directors. Note: Hard Zoning is enforced upon firmware initialization.

  • Page 191

    Configuring Zoning Zone set sizes are affected by the number of zones in the zone set, the length of each zone name, the number of members in each zone, and the Interoperability mode of the fabric. Please consult with HP Professional Services or your support representative if you have questions regarding specific zone set configurations.
