Need Advise !!!!
I have zoned my HOST1 with both storage through Brocade switch with same Host HBA ports. I am concerned for the data consistency/corruption if i copy the data using same Host1 HBA port card for both the storage.
Can i connect my both storages from single path of host1 HBA through zoning without any risk/interruption on data flow as i have to copy the data between storage LUNS which is mounted on my HOST without impacting data consistency.
Zones Configuration with IBM Storage :
SAN Switch Y - Storage IBM Ctrl A --- > Host1 HBA Port 1 ( Fist FC Path )
SAN Switch Z - Storage IBM Ctrl B --- > Host1 HBA Port 2 ( Second FC Path )
Zones Configuration with HP Storage :
SAN Switch Y - Storage HP Ctrl A --- > Host1 HBA Port 1 ( Fist FC Path )
SAN Switch Z - Storage HP Ctrl B --- > Host1 HBA Port 2 ( Second FC Path )
Can somebody help on this. if required i can upload the connectivity diagram for better understanding.
