CA zoning using MPX 200 router

Hello

 

What would be considered the correct zoning for CA when the EVA is a P6500 using the MPX200 router.  Would I zone FP1 of both controllers to Port 1 of the MPX 200, and FP2 of both controllers to Port 2 of the MPX 200? Or do the MPX 200 act as an ISL and they are not zoned?  Any recommendations on how the FCIP route should be configured.

 

Thanks

Hi

as far as I know MPX200 is considered as ISL and is not  zoned look at the quick installation guide

for acceptable configurations

HP's SAN Design Reference Guide should also be able to give you more details about this.

When you zone you generally only zone the end-devices.

For anybody to give you recommendations about your FCIP route you need to provide some details about it (speed, latency, etc).
