Completing the FC configuration worksheet

You require FC initiator and target WWPNs and storage configuration information to perform FC configuration tasks.

FC host WWPNs

Port WWPN
Initiator (host) port connected to FC switch 1  
Initiator (host) port connected to FC switch 2  

FC target WWPNs

You require two FC data LIFs for each node in the cluster. The WWPNs are assigned by ONTAP when you create the LIFs as part of creating the storage virtual machine (SVM).


The figure shows four nodes, two switches, and a host. Each node has two LIFs, one connected to each switch. The host also connects to both switches.
LIF WWPN
Node 1 LIF with port connected to FC switch 1  
Node 2 LIF with port connected to FC switch 1  
Node 3 LIF with port connected to FC switch 1  
Node 4 LIF with port connected to FC switch 1  
Node 1 LIF with port connected to FC switch 2  
Node 2 LIF with port connected to FC switch 2  
Node 3 LIF with port connected to FC switch 2  
Node 4 LIF with port connected to FC switch 2  

Storage configuration

If the aggregate and SVM are already created, record their names here; otherwise, you can create them as required:

Node to own LUN  
Aggregate name  
SVM name  

LUN information

LUN size  
Host operating system  
LUN name (optional)  
LUN description (optional)  

SVM information

If you are not using an existing SVM, you require the following information to create a new one:

SVM name  
SVM IPspace  
Aggregate for SVM root volume  
SVM user name (optional)  
SVM password (optional)  
SVM management LIF (optional) Subnet:
IP address:
Network mask:
Gateway:
Home node:
