We have a Cisco 9513 Director. Just now I added 2 new hosts to the existing Zone and Activated the configuration.
But when check in the VMAX these newly added hosts are not visible. I refreshed the SMC, logged out of the SMC and even waited for some time to see if the newly added hosts will be visible in the VMAX. But it is not appearing in VMAX FA ports.
Yeah if it is something like AIX or HP-UX hosts, you do not see the initiators logged into VMAX FAs..until you scan the bus..like cfgmgr for AIX.(I have seen this for me)..and may be ioscan for HP-UX(not sure)...
With UNIX alike OSs you need to initiate a new ioscan in order the storage array to actually see the wwpns ! So only zoning is not enough. After the zones are activated rescan please.
i don't trust GUIs ..if you know that zoning was completed correctly and active zoneset has been activated, run this:
symmask -sid <SID> list logins
see if your host WWNs is in the list
