Create a server profile with user-specified identifiers for a Fibre Channel connection

You can specify the WWPN, WWNN, and MAC address when creating a Fibre Channel connection, either when you create or edit the server profile. You must provide these three values. You cannot change the values after you create the connection.

  1. Create a server profile as normal.
  2. On the Add Connection screen, select Fibre Channel as the device type, and select the user-specified IDs option.
  3. Enter the following values for each box:
    • WWPN: Any virtual WWN not currently in use.

    • WWNN: Any WWN not currently in use, for example, the WWPn value ±1.

    • MAC address: Any virtual MAC address not in use.

  4. Verify your changes appear in the details pane.
