We use NPIV and also our storage is presented via IBM SAN Volume Controller Clusters. Both NPIV and the SVC Cluster nodes show up in different colours in the zoning reports. I dont quite understand what this means. Can anyone explain this to me?
As per intruduction worksheet in the report
RED Critical A situation exists where if not corrected, loss of access to data may occur. Action is necessary.ORANGE Important A situation exists where if not corrected, may result in a malfunctioning of the SAN.BLUE Review Further investigation is necessary to assess the impact to the SANWHITE Normal Best practices are being adhered to, no further investigation is necessary.GREEN Normal LSAN zones are highlighted green to draw attention to them, no further investigation is necessary.
So green and white are OK
Blue probably a hanging member, ie wwpn not active during the scan
