I was going through another discussion about getting the WWN for the LUNs in NetApp here - https://communities.netapp.com/message/30545
As mentioned here the serial number of the LUN can be converted to a Hex value and the appending the value '60a98000' to find the WWID for the LUN to find the mapping in VMWare.
My question is this:
Looking at the IEEE list for the vendor OUIs we can see that NetApp has a few OUIs - http://standards.ieee.org/develop/regauth/oui/oui.txt
The ones of interest to me were:
1) 600a0b80 - 00-A0-B8 - SYMBIOS LOGIC INC. - Example VMWare Mapping found - naa.600a0b800047d5880000469c502506d4
2) 60080e50 - 00-80-E5 - NetApp, Inc - Example VMWare Mapping found- naa.60080e50001bb1440000affb50e8db25
3) 600a0980 - 00-A0-98 - NetApp - Example VMWare Mapping found - naa.600a0980443331736823445147515575
4) 60a98000 - 0A-98-00 - NOT FOUND - Example VMWare Mapping found - naa.60a98000646e2f676d4a732d42556347
Do NetApp units have the Symbios OUI's in their mapping?
What is the difference between the first 3 IDs and the last one? What are the first 3 mapping meant for?
Should I assume that all LUNs exposed in VMWare will have a mapping starting with '60a98000'?
