New Server for EVA4400 - Switch configuration

Guys, we have an existing EVA4400 with 2 switches and 4 servers attached to it.
Now I need to attach an additional server.
From the server side, i don't have any concern. However, I havent done anything with regrds to switch side such as zoning.
Can somebody give me step by step swithc procedure (zoning and other config) right after I attached the fiber cables to the switch?
Server:
1. attach hba, install drivers, get wwwn info

Switch
1. attachd 1 fiber cable to each switch from the server
2. ?
3. ?

switch model:
A8000A HP StorageWorks 4/8 SAN Switch

Thanks.

Re: New Server for EVA4400 - Switch configuration

nibble, here's your approximate plan:

Switch
1. attachd 1 fiber cable to each switch from the server
2. get your EVAs wwn
3. make zoning on switches (if your have no experience with FabricOS cli, use web GUI) - one zone per pair "server + EVA".
4. try to find your servers wwns in eva Command View and create appropriate hosts records
5. create LUNs and present them to hosts
6. PROFIT! :)
