VMAX Front end port limitations

Jump to solution

Hi

About to take delivery of two VMAX arrays, my customer is asking about limitations on Front end ports.

Ports are FC, question - how many devices (devices that the customer will see) can be assigned per port?

I see from DMX discussion that limits may be at processor/director level, and that limit may be related to hypers and not metas.

Any info much apprec.

Tks
