Single HBA Zoning

Let's say I have one server (server A) and three storage frames, (Frame1, Frame2, and Frame3). Currently, I have three zones.

Apparently I am mixing them up. Can you explain why they are not related? Does having multiple device ports in my zone elongate the IO path?Larry

Something else to consider is not related to performance but related to discovery. Windows Miniport drivers are notorious for steping on each other. Beware of windows in a shared zone.
