each will have it's own.   the physical target ports will have wwpns that start with 50:   the lifs will start with 20:

you'll want to zone to the WWPN that is generated with the LIF.

Dear SpindleNinja,

every LIF interface  has own wwpn? or single wwpn?

That looks right.   I think you can also do it from the GUI?  

 

if you haven't seen it. this set of docs might be helpful for you. https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/ontap/san-admin/index.html

Thanks I didnt find the option on GUI.

ONE more question....

do we need to create one LIF for  One fc physcial port?

do we need to create one LIF for  multiple  physcial fc port (group physical port)?

One per active FC port - per SVM.
