IBM P770 Server
2 x VIO Server each with 2 x IBM 5735 HBAs
2 x Brocade 5300 Switches (2 fabrics) running firmware v6.3.0c
EMC Clariion CX3-80
The 4 HBAs are connected to the 2 switches and their physical addresses appear on the fabrics as initiators.
A virtual wwpn has been created on each HBA (using NPIV). These virtual wwpn addresses have been assigned to an LPAR.
The virtual wwpn addresses appear on the fabrics - however by default in DCFM they appear as storage (as opposed to hosts).
I changed the device types for these virtual addresses to be initiators (within DCFM).
A zone has been created on one of the switches and includes a single virtual wwpn address and a single port on the EMC storage array.
At this point I am unable to see the virtual wwpn on the Clariion. My hunch is this is something to do with it being a target as opposed to an initiator.
Can anyone shed any light please?
