Re: Zoning

I prefere option two.

Different zones to make sure that both initiators are isolated from each other.

This is recommended by Brocade as well.

I addition I would recommend to create an ALIAS for each WWPN with a pretty naming convention.

After that you should create the zone and add the ALIAS into it. Last step add the new zone into your active cfg and enable it.

I hope this helps.
