Reg Physical connectivity between clariion and celerra


I am new to EMC products....I just went through some of the documents on Celerra and Clariion...I have couple of questions regarding the connectivity.It may be simple..It would be great if someone can help me out.

1.How to connet Celerra boxes to Clarrion?

         Like we have fc ports and iscsi ports at SPs and BE ports at Celerra....Is this BE ports are fibre or ethernet type??If fc,then its mandatory to have FC switches right?If not how we connect the ethernet port of celerra to fc port of clariion??Why the iscsi ports on clarriion then?

2. How can we connect the simple windows host to clarion ie how to map the available LUN to client..??Do this client needs HBA??

Also one more question on brocade switch...I have read some documents on zoning.So when we connect the source and targets for zoning...Do we need to configure it first on switch before doing zoing?

Please help me on these.......

Thanks a lot in advance.

in zoning their are two things

1 port

2 node

when port logs on fabric first time it is allocated dynamic address from the

domains of switch

when node enters it is allocated with a static name that is world Wide Name

by name server statically and it does not change

hence before zoning these conditions should be met.


it is a device act as a storage array

Active to Passive Array Based


it is NAS device for file transfer so what is the need to join

Clarion Host Connectivity

Yes we need HBA

because connectivity will be done with the help of port and port are present

on HBA and corresponding ports are on Storage device i.e clarrion hence they

both are configured accordingly
