We currrently have two fabrics with no zoning. I want to configure and enable zoning. What is the impact on exissting LUNS? For example will the device name change in a HPUX environment. The switches consist of a VNX, NetApp, ESX, and HPUX. Thank you.

LUN's itself don't have any kind of impact, however in HPUX and AIX you need manadatory to rescan the Port after zone change or in you case when a zoning is created, because due a ID change in some circumstance the LUN is not visible on switch side.
--->>>We currrently have two fabrics...
I would suggest to check on both Fabric a redundant path is work correct, and then begin to create a Zoning in Fabric_A
after zoning is created and save, make sure all path are online and all LUN's are visible, the continued a couple day later with a second Fabric.

if you are preparing your zoning, WWNs,etc..correctly no device should recognize the zoning enable.
