  • Page 51: Important Information On Setting The Core Pid Format

    For example, switches with firmware V3.0.2f or later have the PID set to 1. For a SAN to work correctly, all HP StorageWorks SAN switches or HP Surestore FC switches must have the same PID format setting, either 0 or 1. If a switch is introduced to an existing SAN with a setting that differs from the setting on the SAN, the switch will segment.

  • Page 52: How To Change The Core Pid Format

    How to Change the Core PID Format Note: HP switches ship with the Core switch PID set to 1. HP recommends that if you are in the process of creating a new SAN, set the PID to 1 for all switches in the SAN.
