Limiting access of tape drives over SAN to a single blade server

I want to connect some of our "D2D VTL"s tape drives to a blade server.

However, if I make an SAN zone config between the D2D FC port and the blade VC SAN switch FC ports, ALL THE SERVERS in the blade enclosure will "see" the tape drives.

How can I limit the access of tape drives to a single blade server in the enclosure?

 

Note: Disk systems like EVA or P6000 can limit LUN's access by using the server FC interface WWN. In D2D VTL I cannot do this.

Can you use WWN-zoning instead of ports / DID,PID?

WWN-base zoning seems to address this problem.

 

Thank you.
