    Fabric Zoning This chapter explains how to: • Zone fabrics • Use zoning features and dialog boxes Zoning Basics NOTE: Designing zoning can be a complex task, especially for multiswitch fabrics. Refer to HP’s professional services organization before configuring zoning. This section is designed to help you understand the following concepts so that you can more efficiently use HAFM features to configure and manage zones across a multiswitch fabric:...

  • Page 120: Zoning Through A Single Fibre Channel Managed Product

    Fabric Zoning • Establish barriers between devices that use different operating systems. For example, it is often critical to separate servers and storage devices with different operating systems because accidental transfer of information from one to another can delete or corrupt data. Zoning prevents this accidental transfer of information by grouping devices that use the same operating systems into zones.

This WWN binding feature is available through the Configure Ports option in the Product Manager application’s Configure menu.

Data access is controlled within the storage device, and server HBA access to each LUN is explicitly limited (access is blocked by default).

    Fabric Zoning Zones A zone comprises a set of members that can access each other. Refer to Table 6–2 on page 6-12 for details on the number of members that you can configure in a zone and the number of zones that you can configure in the HAFM zoning library. A zone member can be a product port or the WWN of the device.

  • Page 125: Default Zone

    Fabric Zoning Using Port Numbers To identify a zone member by port number, use the domain identification number of the managed product and the port number on that managed product. For example: Domain 1, Port 1 NOTE: Port numbers cannot be used for zone members if the interoperability mode for the Switch or Director is set to Open Fabric 1.0 mode.

Only one zone set can be active at one time. Devices that are members of zones in the zone set can only communicate with members of zones in the same zone set.
