we are having one brocade 300 switch,storage ,tapelibrary and 3 servers.Among them,
1.Tape library having two drives each having 1FC ports(tapelibrary having robotic arm )
2. Each server having 2 hba cards and we are using one port from each hba card ,Multipathing is done in each server.
3.Among 3 servers one server is backup server another is application and another one is database.
4.In storage we are using 4 FC port to present lun to server.
5.one brocade switch

Best practice would be to zone one target one initiator as it most closely resembles a SCSI bus.
A target is an FC port of tapelib or Storage array.
An initiator is an HBA port in a server.
Whether you want to follow the best practice is up to you.
