Hyper-V Server 2012 Guest Failover Cluster WWNN settings and SAN from address not in hard zone error
Posted on 2013-12-11
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.
