If you do not control the SAN and they will not let you connect it without that information, depending on your HBA you should be able to get the WWN from it's management utility on the 2003 server. Do you know what kind of FC card you have installed? Emulex, qLogic, etc.

Easiest way to do it, is to log into the web management of your switch, and find the port to wich this host is connected,  On the port information or zoning configuration you could easily see the WWN of the host.  do not mistake the actual WWN of the switch port with the host's WWN.
