Switch Binding is available only if the SANtegrity Binding feature is installed. The Switch Binding tab view allows you to enable the product to communicate only with devices that are listed on the Switch Binding Membership List (SBML).
Configuring the Product WWNs can be added to the SBML without regard to whether Switch Binding is enabled or disabled. If the director or switch is online and Switch Binding is not enabled, all nodes and switches attached to the director or switch are automatically added to the SBML.
Configuring the Product Figure 16: Configuring Switch Binding 3. Enable or disable Switch Binding by selecting one of the following options from the Switch Binding State drop-down list. Available selections are: Enable & Restrict E Ports — Enables the switch to bind to devices listed on the SBML through E_Ports only.
Configuring the Product Configuring the Switch Binding Membership List The SBML contains the WWNs of devices that are allowed to communicate with the switch when Switch Binding is enabled. This list is configured using the Switch Binding tab. The contents of the SBML are shown at the bottom of the tab, listed by WWN. The tab can show up to 64 list members.
Configuring the Product To delete a member from the SBML, perform the following procedure: 1. Select Configure from the navigation panel. 2. Select the Security tab and the Switch Binding tab. The Switch Binding tab view displays (Figure 16). 3. Select the Delete button next to the listing for the member. 4.
Configuring the Product Configuring Fabric Binding Fabric Binding functionality, provided by the SANtegrity Binding feature, allows you to bind the switch or director to specified fabrics so that it can communicate only with those fabrics. With Fabric Binding enabled, the product can communicate only with fabrics that are included in the Fabric Binding Membership List (FBML).
Configuring the Product Enable, Disable, and Online State Functions In order for Fabric Binding to function, specific operating parameters and optional features must be enabled. Also, there are specific requirements for disabling these parameters and features when the director or switch is offline or online. Be aware of the following: Because switches are bound to a fabric by WWN and domain ID, the Insistent Domain ID function is automatically enabled if Fabric Binding is enabled.
Configuring the Product Figure 17: Configuring Fabric Binding The Fabric Binding tab is divided into sections by the following headings: Fabric Binding Status—Identifies whether Fabric Binding is active or inactive on the product. Actions to Modify the Active Fabric Binding Membership List (FBML)—Enables you to activate and deactivate Fabric Binding using the following buttons: —...
Configuring the Product Actions to Modify the Pending Fabric Binding Membership List (FBML)—Enables you to modify the pending FBML using the following buttons: — Delete All — By selecting this button, you can delete all members from the pending FBML that are not attached to the current fabric. Members that are attached must remain in the list, because the membership list must contain all attached members to be activated.
Configuring the Product Note: Fabric Binding is also enabled automatically, when the Enterprise Fabric Mode is enabled. However, in this case, only attached fabric members are included in the active FBML. For more information, see “Fabric Binding and the Enterprise Fabric Mode”...
Configuring the Product To populate the pending FBML with the active FBML list, see “Loading All Active FBML Members to the Pending FBML” on page 69. To populate the pending FBML with all of the attached switches or directors, “Loading Only Attached Members to the Pending FBML”...
Configuring the Product Note: The added members of the pending FBML do not participate in Fabric Binding until the list is saved and activated. To activate the pending FBML, see “Activating the Pending FBML” on page 70. Deleting a Member from the Pending FBML To delete a member of the pending FBML, perform the following procedure: 1.
Configuring the Product Loading Only Attached Members to the Pending FBML As an efficient starting point for populating the pending FBML for editing, you may want to start with a list that contains the entries that are required for the pending FBML to become active.
Configuring the Product Configuring Enterprise Fabric Mode Select Configure from the navigation panel. Select the Security tab and the EFM tab; the Enterprise Fabric Mode tab view displays (Figure 18). The Enterprise Fabric Mode automatically enables the features that FICON devices need to participate in a fabric.
Configuring the Product “Domain RSCNs and the Enterprise Fabric Mode” on page 73 “Insistent Domain Identification (ID) and the Enterprise Fabric Mode” on page 73 Fabric Binding and the Enterprise Fabric Mode Fabric Binding is a SANtegrity Binding feature that prohibits switches and directors from communicating with switches or directors that are not part of the fabric.
Configuring the Product If Rerouting Delay is enabled, traffic ceases in the fabric for the time specified in the E_D_TOV field of the Configure Fabric Parameters dialog box (for more information, see “Configuring Fabric Parameters” on page 41). This delay enables frames sent using the old path to arrive at their destination before frames begin traversing the new path.
Configuring the Product Configuring Open Trunking The Open Trunking page enables you to configure open trunking settings. Open Trunking is an optional software feature that is enabled using a feature key. The purpose of Open Trunking is to make efficient use of redundant interswitch links (ISLs) between neighboring switches by means of load balancing.
Configuring the Product Note: For the Director 2/140, ports are displayed through several pages in groups of 32. To configure all of the ports, make sure you go through each set. You must click Activate for each view before moving to the next. To configure Open Trunking: 1.
Configuring the Product Note: Earlier versions of this dialog box may display Credit Starvation Threshold instead of the Low BB Credit Threshold. The system monitors the percentage of time that the port experiences no transmit BB_credits on the link. The link cannot transmit without BB_credits. When the threshold is exceeded, the system reroutes flows away from the ISL that is experiencing this problem.
Configuring the Product Installing Feature Keys Perform this procedure to install one or more of the following optional features: OSMS — The Open Systems Management Server feature allows open systems host control of the product. FICON Management Server — The FICON Management Server feature allows host control and inband management of the director or switch through an IBM System/390 or zSeries 900 Parallel Enterprise Server server attached to a director or switch port.
Configuring the Product The feature key can be installed while the product is online, except in the following circumstances: With E/OS 3.0 or earlier, the product must be offline before a feature can be enabled. If the new feature key removes existing functionality, the product must be offline during the installation process.
Configuring the Product Note: When Activate is selected, all current features are removed and replaced with the features specified in the feature key. Features not included in the new feature key are no longer available on the system. Because of this, it is important to verify that the feature key enables all desired features.

Configuring Zones This chapter provides an overview of zoning and describes how to configure zones and zone sets. This chapter includes the following topics: Understanding Zoning, page 82 Configuring, Adding, or Deleting Zones, page 92 Configuring Zone Sets, page 96 Embedded Web Server User Guide...
Configuring Zones Understanding Zoning Designing zoning can be a complex task, especially for multiswitch fabrics. Consult with your managed product vendor’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 Embedded Web Server features to configure and manage zones across a multiswitch fabric: Benefits of zoning.
Configuring Zones Create groups of devices that are separate from devices in the rest of a fabric. Zoning allows certain processes (such as maintenance or testing) to be performed on devices in one group without interrupting devices in other groups. Allow temporary access between devices for specific purposes.
Configuring Zones zoning through a multiswitch fabric Zone 1 Zone 2 Zone 3 Interswitch Link Director Director Director Figure 22: Zoning through a multiswitch fabric Controlling Access at the Switch A port binding feature is available on switches and directors that allows you to bind a specific switch or director port to the WWN of an attached device for exclusive communication.
Configuring Zones Controlling Access at the Server or Storage Device Features available at the server or storage device can add methods, beyond zoning, to increase network security measures, differentiate between operating systems, and prevent data loss or corruption by controlling access between devices or between separate user groups (such as engineering or human resources).
Configuring Zones Is typically proprietary and protects only a specific vendor’s storage devices. Storage-level access control may not be available for many legacy devices. Before establishing persistent binding or access control features at the storage device, consult with your managed-product vendor’s professional services organization.
Configuring Zones configure for a zone varies according to the number of zones in the zone set, the length of the zone names, and other factors, but is essentially bounded by the available nonvolatile random-access memory (NVRAM) in the managed product. Port numbers cannot be used for zone members if the interoperability mode for Note: the switch or director is set to Open Fabric 1.0 mode.
Configuring Zones 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.
Configuring Zones When no zone set is activated, then all devices are considered to be in the default zone. If a zone set is active, then all connected devices that are not included as members of a zone in the active zone set are included in the default zone. Zone Sets A zone set is a group of zones that you can activate or deactivate as a single entity across all managed products in either a single switch or a multiswitch fabric.
Configuring Zones When fabrics join through an ISL, adjacent managed products exchange active zone configurations and determine if the configurations are compatible and can merge. Zoning configurations are compatible if the active zone names in each fabric are unique. If there are identical zone names in each fabric, then the zones must have identical members for the fabrics to join.
Configuring Zones Table 3: Merging Zones Fabric A Fabric B Result Not zoned Not zoned Fabrics join successfully. The new fabric remains not zoned. Not zoned Zoned Fabrics join successfully and the active zone set will propagate across the fabric. Fabric A inherits zoning configuration from Fabric B.
Configuring Zones Configuring, Adding, or Deleting Zones Perform this procedure to configure, change, add, or delete zones. A zone is a group of devices that can access each other through port-to-port connections. Devices in the same zone can recognize and communicate with each other; devices in different zones cannot.
Configuring Zones The first character of a zone set name must be a letter (A through Z or a through z). A zone set name cannot contain spaces. Valid characters are alphanumerics and the caret ( ^ ), hyphen ( - ), underscore ( _ ), or dollar ( $ ) symbols. A zone set name can have a maximum of 64 characters.
Configuring Zones Figure 24: Modify Zone tab view Rename the zone — To rename a configured zone, type the new name in the Zone field and click Rename Zone. After the name is validated, the zone name is changed. 6. Nodes may be local to this product or they may be attached to a remote fabric member.
Configuring Zones Add member by WWN — Type the WWN of a device in the World Wide Name field and click the adjacent Add Member button. The device is added to the zone. Add member by domain ID and port number — Type the domain ID (1 through 31) of the switch in the Domain ID field, type the switch port number to which a device is attached, and click the adjacent Add Member button.
Configuring Zones Configuring Zone Sets Perform this procedure to configure, change, enable, or disable zone sets. A zone set is a group of zones that is activated or deactivated as a single entity across all managed products in either a single switch or a multiswitch fabric. Only one zone set can be active at one time.
Configuring Zones Enable or disable default zone — To toggle (enable or disable) the default zone state, click Enable Default Zone or Disable Default Zone. Depending on the toggle state, the Default Zone field changes to Enabled or Disabled. Disable zone set — To disable the active zone set and place all attached devices in the default zone, click Disable Zone Set.
