I am new to storage networking and have been tasked with updating the configurations of two Cisco MDS 9124s for FC connectivity to four new Cisco UCS blade servers. Unfortunately, I have never worked on the MDS 9000 platforms and am unsure on how to modify the current configurations and not disrupt production.
I have been provided the pwwn #s for each of the new blade server hba's. The new blade servers are referenced as fcalias EPGS-ESX-12 thru 15.
I have attached copies of the current configurations for both 9124s, along with separate attachements for the changes I perceive need to be made on each switch.
I am interested in obtaining information/procedure on how to effect these changes in a non-disruptive manner to the production environment.
Thank you Brian! Your response was spot on! The configuration modifications were completed successfully for the new blades and connectivity verified. In addition, your insight into the current zone configuration with respect to ratios of initiators to targets was implemented.
Thank you also for the references. They proved very helpful.
