We are planning implementing DCC policies. We have NPIV ports (multiple vitrual WWN in a single physical port) and
we want to know if they are supported with DCC policies. For example we make a single policy with all vitrual
WWN and the switch port.

Firts off I wouldn't do this because of the administration required to keep the fabric running smoothly and because off added complexity during troubleshooting. That said there's no restriction on DCC's with regards to NPIV. A device merly has to have a pwwn to be added to the policy.
Refer to the admin guide for your FOS the get the details on security policies.

Access Gateway uses ADS (Advanced Device Security) policy instead.
Please refer to Access Gateway Administration Guide (53-1001760-01), section "Managing Policies and Features in Access Gateway Mode" for details.
Hope this helps,

According to the following discussion I though that there is a problem with DCC policies (due to FDISC instead of FLOGI) when multiple virtual WWNs (NPIVs) share the same switch port.

A thru, forgot about that which is a bid odd because that was my own answer.
But anywho that was a year ago, perhaps FOS can deal with this in the present.
So try/test it and should it indeed work let us know
