UCS VSAN to 2 SAN SWITCHES

Hi, Cisco Folks:

Really need you guys to offer your best practice's advices:

Customer Setup:

2 X UCS FI

Fabric A

------------

2 FC Uplink to 1 MDS, says with VSAN 111, this is hooked uo to Storage array1

Another 2 FC Uplink to another MDS, also VSAN 111, this is hooked up to another Storage array

The 2 MDS is ISLed

They use FC Pin Groups to hardcode the FC traffic

Fabric B

------------

2 FC Uplink to 1 MDS, says with VSAN 111, this is hooked up to the same Storage array 1 (AS IN FABRIC A ABOVE)

Another 2 FC Uplink to another MDS, also VSAN 111, this is hooked up to another Storage array (AS IN FABRIC A ABOVE)

The 2 MDS is ISLed

They use FC Pin Groups to hardcode the FC traffic

Q1.

If I propose 2 VSAN concepts as recommended by Cisco, will the above configuration need to be changed? I mean thing likes ISL from 1 MDS to another MDS.

Q2.

How about FC PIN GROUP for each Fabric?

This is the first time I see such a set up though I have seen the more mainstream ones many times,

Appreciate your helps.

Any chance they could consolidate both array's onto two MDS's?  Use two VSAN's and aggregate FC links from each FI into Trucked Port-Channels.
