Direct-Attach FC to HP Brocade SAN Fabric migration

Hi All. I am currently planning for the installation of a HP Brocade SAN fabric into an existing 3PAR / C7000 setup.

Our reasons for this are to add in an additional C7000 blade enclosure and plan for future expansion. 

 

Currently we have a 3PAR 7200 connecting directly to a C7000 enclosure. 

 

Has anyone migrated from a direct-attached FC setup to using a traditional SAN fabric?

 

Once zoning has been configured on the Brocade switches will any additional configuration be required on either the 3PAR or VMWare endpoints?

 

Thanks for any advice.

Hi

you will have to reconfigure the 3PAR ports from point to loop

and also to configure the SAN Fabric in the virtual connect. that is also

configured as direct attach.Also you have to create the correct zoning in

the brocade switches.depending on you configuration check that the WWN

in the server profiles don't change.
