LUN protection?

Is there anyway to assign LUNs to particular hosts within the SAN and protect those LUNs from being stomped on by another host by using only HP-UX systems? Without using the Storage Allocator that from my reading only runs on a Windows platform?

Re: LUN protection?

You didn't mention which kind of disk controller you are using.

The va7xxx offers a simple solution to this -- you can apply a list of WWNs (Worldwide Names -- essentially FC MAC addresses) which are allowed to access a given LUN.

Storageworks products have a very similar feature.

Can you tell us more about your environment?

Somehow my posts are getting mixed up. This one disappeared from my view for a day so I reposted and have gotten a lot of replies on the other post. Your answer however is very helpfull. Thanks.
