Hello guys. I have a dumb question. I am an EMC storage engineer and this is my first time working on Netapp arrays. I have the Netapp FAS8020 HA array. We are using it for both NAS and SAN. The connecting servers are 6 x UCS 220 M3. The SAN switches are brocade 300.
I have zoned all the servers pwwn to the Netapp controller port 0c and 0d on each controller. I used the wwn of the vserver (20:00....) not the physical wwn (50:00...)
This is all I have done. In vcenter under storage adapters and configuration, when I scan I don't see the Netapp. What am I missing? What do I need to do on the Netapp side and and server side to allow allo the server to see the SAN storage
Can someone give me the detail step by step on how to host connect to a Netapp cluster mode FAS 8020 via SAN.
Some thing. As detail as below for EMC. Like with the clariion, I zone the servers and go to the clariiion register the initiators create a storage group , add host and bam! Server sees storage.
Thanks for the information below. very helpful. vserver fcp initiator show, doesnt show the initiators wwns.
Below is my zoning details. I used the Vservers wwns (the 20:00..) instead of the physical controller wwns. thats what I am supposed to use right? Again this is my first time working on NetApps - so if my questions are dumb , please forgive me.
is the command "run -node node1 -command fcp topology show" not supposed to have shown me more details?
It is supposed to show you exactly switches in fabric. You can try "fcp topology -z" which will show ports that are zoned to filer target ports. But I'm not sure how it interoperates with LIF at this point (i.e. - is nodeshell aware of additional WWPNs).
