I am trying to understand read only zoning - particularly this statement in the MDS 9000 Guide:
"If two members belong to a read-only zone and to a read-write zone, the read-only zone takes priority and write access is denied."
What I am wanting to do is this - I have ESXi servers that are zoned to see my storage ports on my SAN, now I want to zone a Windows server to see those same storage ports on the SAN so that it can read those LUN's and perform backups of them. I want the Windows server to see them as read-only though. I am not sure how to interpret the statement above - does it mean that since my storage ports are in multiple zones where they are normally read-write but now they are also in a zone where they are read-only that they will only by read-only in all zones? That doesn't seem like it should work that way but I have never configured a read-only zone so I don't really understand.
