Hello sir,

I am new to fabric zoning. We have mcdata4500 switch. Like to create a new zone.

one new windows server want to access few luns in an EMC storage. we have

two mcdata4500 switches. we installed two HBA's in our new server

and pulled the fiber to both the switches. could any one guide to configure the

fabric?

thanks,

mohan

Re: zoning details

Go into the web interface on each switch and go to configure-&gt; zoning. From there you need to create a zoneset and zones within it that have both your server HBA WWN and the end port WWN for your array that the switch is connected to. The list of WWNs connected to the switch should auto-populate with the WWNs of the connected ports. Your server WWN will probably start with 10 and the EMC WWN should start with something else.

If you don't care to much about security you could just create one zone with all WWNs in it, but that isn't advisable.
