Is it possible to have different passwords for each of the devices connected into a Switch Fabric? In particular could one have separate and distinct passwords for each of the HBAs connected to a MDS 9000 Switch?
I assume you mean for the FCSP protocol? If so, then yes. I have not done it with HBA's, but I have done it with different switches. I had to give each MDS it's own username and password in the MDS configuration. For using FCSP between the switches, the username is the switch WWN.
yes I meant FCSP - whilst using DH-CHAP. What we want to do is have a number of HBAs connecting to a switch - but for a set of HBAs to have one password - and another set of HBAs to have a nnumber password. Hence we require the switch to be able to be configured with a password per port/interface.
Make sense, what I suspect you will need to do is configure each HBA PWWN as a device name along with the desired password for that HBA. As I noted, I have not done this with an HBA so I'm not 100% sure what to configure for the device name. The HBA documentation should explain how to configure the device name and password.
This is what I had to configure for my 9216 to do FCSP with a 9509.
