    Can you please share how to do zoning and masking on storage end?

  4. Ramdev says:

    Hi Shubham, zoning and masking is pure storage admin task. We never involved in the task. We will share if we get a chance to do that.

  5. Yogesh Raheja says:

    @Shubham, you can try zoning and masking in any storage simulator (try to find any from google). Its just like assigning a name to underlying LUN and represent in on the server at OS level with WWN unique no.

    What is the difference between Node WWN number and Port WWN number

  9. Ramdev says:


    World-wide name (WWN):  Similar to an Ethernet address in the traditional networking world, this is a unique name assigned by the manufacturer to the HBA. This name is then used to grant and restrict access to other components of the SAN. There are two basic forms of WWN.

    1. World Wide Node Name (WWNN)—Assigned to Fibre Channel node device by vendor
    2. World Wide Port Name (WWPN) —Assigned to Fibre Channel Host BusAdapter port by vendor
