What settings to use for Emulex LP8000 HBA cards, connecting to external storage

I'm connecting a Solaris host to external storage via a switch (host is using Emulex LP8000 HBA) when editing lpfc.conf, should I use world wide port name or world wide node name for the persistant bindings? I have two HBAs on the host, using multi-pathing software.

I've found the port name to be most effective, but things change depending on your fabric and storage.  The WWPN has worked on all storage I've come across (EMC and IBM).
