Initiators are identified by their WWN, and as with other block protocols, aliases can be created for initiators. To aid in creating aliases for FC initiators, a WWN can be selected from the WWNs of discovered ports. Further, and as with other block protocols, initiators can be collected into groups. When a LUN is associated with a specific initiator group, the LUN will only be visible to initiators in the group. In most FC SANs, LUNs will always be associated with the initiator group that corresponds to the system(s) for which the LUN has been created.
The appliance is an ALUA-compliant array. Properly configuring an FC initiator in an ALUA environment requires an ALUA-aware driver, and may require initiator-specific tuning. See "Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance: How to set up Client Multipathing" (Doc ID 1628999.1) for more information.
