The SunStorage F5100 Flash Array supports Access Configuration (also known as zoning) using Sun Storage Common Array Manager. Zoning is a configuration method that allows each host, or host port, to have its own dedicated storage resources. Zoning allows for storage resource segregation, controlled resource sharing, protection, and topology control. Zoning is done on a per host, per FMod basis for the SunStorage F5100 Flash Array.
The minimum requirements for zoning are:
Sun Storage CAM version 6.7 or higher running on a management host directly connected to the F5100 Array, or a supported Sun Storage CAM data host directly connected to the F5100 running the Sun Storage CAM proxy agent software.
A supported LSI-based HBA connected to the array, with the required firmware patch.
See the SunStorage F5100 Flash Array Product Notes for the latest information on supported HBA information, including where to download the required firmware patch.
