Re: N_Port Node and N_Port Port wwns

As per the FC protocol, Node WWN will be
numerically one more than the Port WWN.

N_Port Node World Wide Name = 0x50060b0000011c33
N_Port Port World Wide Name = 0x50060b0000011c32

For zoning you need "N_Port Port World Wide Name"

hi,

i would recommend to you to read this link :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibre_Channel

N_port is a port on the node (e.g. host or storage device) used with both FC-P2P or FC-SW topologies. Also known as Node port.
