Screen component

Description

Zoned

Indicates whether or not the SAN is zoned; can be No zoning (open zoned) or Zoned.

HPE OneView determines whether or not the SAN is zoned based on the following conditions:

No zoning (open zoned)

The default zone is set to allow all and there are no active zone sets. HPE OneView will not perform automated zoning on open zoned SANs. Open zoned SANs are treated as Read Only.

Zoned

The default zone is set to deny all or there is an active zone set. HPE OneView can perform automated zoning on zoned SANs.

Automate Zoning

Indicates whether or not HPE OneView will automatically create zones as part of adding SAN storage to server profiles. The membership and naming of the zones is based on the zoning policy specified in HPE OneView. See About SAN zoning for more information.

Automated zoning automatically creates, edits, and deletes zones on the SAN when storage volumes are attached to or detached from server profiles.

Yes

Automated zoning is turned on for the SAN, and HPE OneView controls the zoning operations between the server profiles and the storage system. Automated zoning is only available for SANs associated with a network.

No

Automated zoning is turned off for the SAN. Zoning must be configured manually in order for the SAN to be visible to server profiles.

Zone layout

single initiator / all targets

A single zone is created for each server profile initiator and all storage system targets serving volumes to the initiator.
