    • If you want to set up the initial zoning assignments using Sun Blade Zone Manager Quick Setup option, click OK and proceed to Allocating Storage to Entire Chassis: Quick Setup (Web).
  3. To assign storage resources to a single blade server, perform these steps in the Zoning Config dialog:
    1. Click New Assignments.

      New Assignments dialog appears.

    2. Click a blade server then click the storage resources (HDDs) that you want to assign to the selected blade server.

      Note - All HDD chassis slots that do not have an HDD storage device installed are labeled “empty.” Empty HDD chassis slots are not allocated to CPU blade servers.


      Caution  - Alternatively, you can allocate storage resources to multiple blade servers; however, the servers must be enabled for multipathing. For further instructions, see Allocate Single Storage Resource to Multiple Blade Servers: Detailed Setup (Web).

      Although the Sun Blade Zone Manager displays them, NEM0 and NEM1 External SAS connections are not supported.
