Connecting the nexus 5500 with multiple vsans

November 30Hits:0

Hi,
it's my first experience in the fibre channel world and i have a few doubts about the best way to connect the nexus 5500 to a EMC storage.
This is my scenario
this is my configuration:
vsan database
vsan 2
vsan 2 interface fc 1/1
vsan 3
vsan 3 interface fc 1/2
interface fc1/1
switchport mode f
no shut
interface fc1/2
switchport mode f
no shut
now I don't know how can I connect the port fc1/3 to the vnx storage, I think I can't make a trunk like ethernet, can anyone help me?
Or i only can do this with zoning
Thanks
Fred

Hello Fred,
All interfaces must be in the same vsan for them to see each other
vsan database
vsan 2 interface fc1/1, fc1/2, fc1/3
exit
Then you can zone each separately
example:
zone name host1 vsan 2
member pwwn 11:11:11:11:11:11:11:11    (host1 pwwn)
member pwwn 33:33:33:33:33:33:33:33    (VNX)
zone name host2 vsan 2
member pwwn 22:22:22:22:22:22:22:22    (host2 pwwn)
member pwwn 33:33:33:33:33:33:33:33    (VNX)
zoneset name Zoneset1 vsan 2
mem host1
mem host2
zoneset activate name Zoneset1 vsan 2
Thanks
