I need to plan SAN zoning on the nexus 5ks. Wanted to know should i use fcalias or device-alias to start with? I am aware of their pros and cons but still would like to know what are the best practices that Cisco suggests? In my environment, i just have a bunch oh hosts sitting as hypervisors on the UCS (initiators) talking to Netapp (Targets).
I am putting each hba from each host talking to each cna on the Netapp in their respective zones. Example zones:
zone name hp1_hba0-Netapp_cna1a vsan 100
zone name hp1_hba1-Netapp_cna1a vsan 100
What is this actually buying me instead of changing the default-zone from deny to permit? By creating zones I am just elloborating on what host-hba can talk to the storage-cna, BUT i am not denying anything?

Two ACI fabrics
Stretching VLANs using OTV
Both fabrics are advertising BD subnets into same routing domain
Some BDs(or say VLANs) are stretched, but some are not.

VMware Trunk Port Group is supported from ACI version 2.1

ASAv version must be compatible with ACI and device package version
