Working on a fully IBM environment for some years,I asked to my self, whet happens with zoning of my LPARs if I lost a vioserver, a FC switch, or a controler (node) on the storage system.
You will find here, examples of these scenarios on a IBM pureflex system and a V7000 storage system.
On every scenario you will find information for: 1- LPAR virtual FC adapters, WWNs, and WWNs for live partition mobility. 2- VIOServers with their VFCHOST, fcs0 and fcs1 adapters. 3- Cable connection between ports on every VIOserver and FC switches on the pureflex chassis. 4- Ports used, active zones, on every switches. 5- Cable connection between FCswitches and the storage, ports used on the nodes, active WWNs on controlers (nodes) on V7000 system.
I know there’re other scenarios, but I think with all these examples it’s enough.
Hope this helps.
Just thanks if the post was helpful 🙂
