Just wondering how other folks are doing their zoning.
Is it better to use a single initiator/single target or single initiator/multiple target when creating a zone?
ESXi host has HBA1 and HBA2
Two Brocade 6520 FC switches (two fabrics): SW1 and SW2
EMC VMAX with eight FC ports (1-4 on SW1 and 5-8 on SW2)
Create four zones on SW1: one for each initiator/target pair
Create four zones on SW2: one for each initiator/target pair.
Total of eight zones.
Create one zone on SW1: one initiator and four targets
Create one zone on SW2: one initiator and four targets
Total of two zones
For 30 hosts, that's 240 zones versus 60 zones.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
