Hi all

I am not that familiar with SAN's etc, but can anyone tell me if it is normal, or OK, to have a port in more than 2 zones ? and why would you need to do it?

it's normal, you may have an array port that is shared between multiple hosts so you will see that port in multiple zone, or you have a host that is zoned to multiple storage arrays/ tape libraries. Google for "Single initiator zoning" as well as "zoning best practices"
