Before transitioning a SAN FC environment, you must configure zones by using the FC zone planner to group the initiator hosts and targets.

  • The cluster and initiator hosts must be connected to the switch.

  • The FC zone script file must be accessible.

Steps
  1. If there are any changes to the igroup configurations on the 7-Mode systems, modify and regenerate the FC zone plan.

  2. Log in to the CLI of the switch.

  3. Copy and execute the required zone commands one at a time.

    The following example runs the zone commands on the switch:

    switch1:admin>config terminal
    # Enable NPIV feature
    feature npiv
    zone name auto_transition_igroup_d31_194bf3 vsan 10
    member pwwn 21:00:00:c0:dd:19:4b:f3
    member pwwn 20:07:00:a0:98:32:99:07
    member pwwn 20:09:00:a0:98:32:99:07
    .......
    .......
    .......
    copy running-config startup-config
  4. Verify the data access from the cluster by using the test initiator hosts.

  5. After the verification is complete, perform the following steps:

    1. Disconnect the test initiator hosts.

    2. Remove the zone configuration.
