Introduction
Data collection through the Product Manager application to help isolate system
problems. The data includes a memory dump file and audit, hardware, and
engineering logs.
Simple network management protocol (SNMP) management using the Fibre
Alliance MIB that runs on the HAFM server. Up to 12 authorized management
workstations can be configured through the HAFM application to receive
unsolicited SNMP trap messages. The trap messages indicate operational state
changes and failure conditions.
SNMP management using the Fibre Channel Fabric Element MIB (Version 1.10),
transmission control protocol/internet protocol (TCP/IP) MIB-II definition (RFC
1213), or a product-specific MIB that run on each switch. Up to 12 authorized
management workstations can be configured through the Product Manager
application to receive unsolicited SNMP trap messages. The trap messages
indicate switch operational state changes and failure conditions.
NOTE: For more information about SNMP support provided by HP products, refer to the hp
StorageWorks SNMP reference guide for director 2/64, edge switch 2/16, and edge switch 2/32.

Zoning

The switch supports a name server zoning feature that partitions attached devices into
restricted-access groups called zones. Devices in the same zone can recognize and
communicate with each other through switched port-to-port connections. Devices in
separate zones cannot communicate with each other.
Zoning is configured by authorizing or restricting access to name server information
associated with device N_Ports that attach to switch fabric ports (F_Ports). A zone
member is specified by the port number to which a device is attached, or by the
eight-byte (16-digit) World Wide Name (WWN) assigned to the host bus adapter
(HBA) or Fibre Channel interface installed in a device. A device can belong to
multiple zones.
CAUTION: If zoning is implemented by port number, a change to the switch fiber-optic
cable configuration disrupts zone operation and may incorrectly include or exclude a
device from a zone.
If zoning is implemented by WWN, removal and replacement of a device HBA or Fibre
Channel interface (thereby changing the device WWN) disrupts zone operation and
may incorrectly include or exclude a device from a zone.
In Open Fabric mode, only zoning by WWN is supported. Zoning by port numbers is
not.
