Hi Eddie!

In your case, there are 3 key requirements that must be accomplished:

1) All MSA and managment host must be in the same zone on Brocade
2) Installed ACU on managment host
3) HP FC HBA (I had negative experience when Qlogic HBA don't "seen" MSA)

Hello Eddie,

This should work. Its a supported config.
But its advisable to zone every host to the correct msa. (Best practise).
What i mean is when you have MSA A,B,C,D,E
and Host K,L,M

K needs to access A and C
L needs to access them all
M needs to access B,D and E

Create a zone for K,L,M
(K,A) and (K,C)

With only 5 MSA's and a few hosts i would prefer portzoning.
Please update ACU to the latest , can be downloaded from hp.com (donwload the ADU with the same version as well) both can be downloaded from HP.com.

Kind Regards

You should mention the host OS, since HP-UX has special conditions for the MSA.
