on data center some storage arrays changed name in compliance with new naming convention. OCI, will update the names on FC identity, or i need to perform change name manually. In case, how can i proceed?
Lets pretend you are bringing OCI into an environment where OCI has never been installed before.
Lets pretend you have installed OCI, and discovered 100% of the FC(oE) switches in the environment.
At this point, the FC Identify view is at its largest - nearly no WWNN in the environments are identified.
If you deploy a vSphere datasource, all of the WWNNs of all of the HBAs of every ESXi host managed by that vSphere will automagically disappear from the FC Identify view - because those WWNNs and WWPNs are discovered by the datasource.
If you deploy a EMC Clariion datasource, one row with 1 WWNN and some even number of WWPNs will disappear from the FC Identify view because the storage datasource learns of what the WWNN and WWPNs are.
So, in a perfect world, no customer has to identify any storage device manually in the FC Identify view, because everything they own is supported by OCI datasources.
The FC Identify view allows for identification of non-virtualized hosts, tape devices, and those relatively rare storage devices that OCI doesn't have a datasource for.
