CNA LUN Discovery

How does an CNA actually discover a LUN/storage array entity? There  are very detailed explanatins about how a CNA logs into the fabric using  FIP FLOGI and FDISC and how the ENode is assigned an FPMA that consists  of an FC-MAP and an FC_ID, but the explanation stops there.

So, how does the CNA see the FC array? Does it have something to do with the way the CNA is configured? Never configured one...

Re: CNA LUN Discovery

Hi Mel,

     My understanding is that the CNA will see all LUN's on the storage.

You need to configure the SAN to block the LUN's to the CNA.

Thanks

Michael.
