Re: eva5000 loop switches

The internal switches are just for connecting disks to controllers, not for servers. No need to configure anything.

Hope this helps!

Re: eva5000 loop switches

Zoning is a characteristic of fabric topology, that means the architecture implemented in FC switches like Brocade or SAN Switch. Loops devices, as the name suggest uses loop topology, this topology doesn't need zoning because it is a loop.
