Configuring Fabric Device Nodes

After you configure the hardware in your direct-attach system or SAN, you must ensure that the systems recognize the devices. This section explains host recognition of fabric devices, also known as 24-bit FC addressing devices on the SAN. After configuring the devices, ports, and zones in your SAN, make sure that the system is aware of the devices. You can have up to 16 million fabric devices connected together on a SAN with FC support.

This section is limited to the operations required from the perspective of the Oracle Solaris OS. It does not cover other aspects, such as device availability and device-specific management. If devices are managed by other software, such as a volume manager, refer to the volume manager product documentation for additional instructions.
