Not able to see server initiators on storage


Hi Techies,


We have 8 UCS blades which are connected to our NetApp fas 8040 and working properly. Recently server team installed 4 more UCS blades. On storage end we have 2 FCoE SVM's. One is for only boot luns and another one is for normal data lun's.


This is 2 node cluster and Ontap version is 8.3.1


We have 4 FC adapters on each node.

0e and 0f are using for data SVM lifs and 0g and 0h are using for boot lun SVM. Well the problem is, we are able to these 4 UCS initiators from 0h anf 0g which are under boot SVM and we are not able to see the initiators on data SVM (0e and 0f). Zoning is done properly. Can anyone help me with this issue.
