Hi,

I currently have a single San attached to my vmware esxi enviroment via 2 independant fibre switches.

I'd like to add a second fibre san and give my hosts access. should i be looking at zoning the fibre switches in order to acheive this ? or can i simply use my exisiting fibre switches setup as is ?

thanks

Zoning is there for security purposes. It won't affect performance.   Zoning will also let you create more than one LUN0 target because each LUN0 could be in a different zone.   That will be beneficial if you need to have the same target ID be LUN0 on the same SAN.

So bottom line, you probably want to do this just to make life easy for you and prevent people from getting access to data they shouldn't be, but don't do it if you are thinking this will give you a performance benefit only.
