I am experiencing several errors on my san switches on ports that my hyper-v cluster servers are plugged into.
2 SANbox 5802 FC Switch without any zones setup.
1 XIO ISE2
2 Dell R710
The two dell servers are part of a hyper-v cluster. I have two vm's running in the hyper-v cluster that is a guest cluster.
Each server has a dual port qlogic QLE2562 hba. One port goes to one san switch and one goes to the other.
Each hyper-v server has two VSAN's setup on each and each one is mapped to a different port on the QLE2562.
2 Server 2008 R2 Vm's running guest SQL cluster
Each Guest VM has two Fibre Channel adapters which means that each VM has 4 WWPN's for a total of 8. By default hyper-v sets the WWNN all to the same address for every fibre channel adapter I add. Does this matter? I feel like I should change the WWNN so each of the virtual Fibre Channel adapters should have a unigue WWNN so I should have 2 WWNN for each VM and 4 total of both VM's. Is this not the case? Should I leave them the same?? I can't find any documentation about whether the WWNN should be changed. It seems like I should.
On SAN switchs, specific to the ports the hyper-v servers are connected to I see several of these messages that happen every so often.:
][Eport][Port: 3][Received 1 frame(s) from address not in hard zone (current frame src address = 0x10000, dest address = 0x10301)]
Anyone have any thoughts to why I am seeing this message and about how the WWNN should be configured?
Thank you for your time.
AFAIK you have to use SANsurfer
"Click the Generate button in the vPort WWN Generation dialogue box and let SANsurfer FC HBA Manager generate a unique WWN." (from a PDF which I have locally.
