We have a small fabric of 4 switches that I am presently using only LUN masking at the array for security. This is working fine but have been told I should also institute WWN zoning on the switch as this protects HBA's from communicating with other HBA's and other storage ports. Basically a bad HBA could affect a good HBA because there is no protection from seeing the bad HBAs fabric events. I've heard security reasons but not this reason. Is this valid?
