I'm connecting a Cisco UCS chassis to a Brocade 300 switch which connects to our 3Par array. The Brocade is setup in NPIV mode. The wwpn from the first blade is zoned in with the 3Par array and it's working fine. When I try to bring up the second blade, the wwpn is showing up on the same port as the first blade, I have added it to the same zone as the first blade, but this time 3Par cannot access it. Can I reuse the same zone or does it need to be separate zones for each blade?

--->>> The Brocade is setup in NPIV mode.
to clarify, are the port in Brocade 300 set as in NPIV or is the 300 set in AG Mode ?
--->>> When I try to bring up the second blade, the wwpn is showing up on the same port as the first blade,
I assume you are in AG Mode,
If the Brocade is set in AG Mode, how are UCS Blade Connected to ? Port on 300 ?
post switchshow output please.

The UCS chassis is connected to port 11 on the Brocade. Here is the switchshow and portshow. Thanks.

Since Brocade is set in Native Mode and UCS is connected as NPIV, I believe you must made some settings on UCS Port side, like LSAN. I'm not familiary whit such UCS equipment,but i think Cisco should have DOC about any such config.

maybe this help a bit to solve you problem, follow this link
from this Threads by Cisco Forum as per my understanding the port must be set as E Port / F Port and not as N Port.
because N_Port handle Connectivity Device, while E and F Port handle Switch Port.

The issue was for M81KR adapters on UCS chassis, the OS needs to be loaded and driver first needs to be installed before the adapter gets initialized. Once that was done, storage array could see the wwn.
