How Huawei Storage support NPIV by hyper V & Emulex HBA etc.

Issue Description
How Huawei Storage support NPIV by hyper V & Emulex HBA etc.
Alarm Information
None
Handling Process
Suggest customer to add a FC switch, setting at host and HBA card side, our SAN only realise physical FC link and add WWN for each of them.
Root Cause
Customer request "NPIV" function while host+HBA connected to SAN directly, but for NPIV function realization, need to add one FC switch between the Emulex card and S2600T, it can’t be realized under direct FC connection. 
Because the NPIV will simulate one Emulex card to several virtual ones, but for our S2600T, only realize the WWN of physical FC HBA. So in this situation, need to add one FC switch between them, make all the NPIV virtual HBA cards corresponded with each ports of FC switch, so the S2600T will consider each WWN of virtual FC HBA on every FC switch ports as a physical ones, of course the FC physical links of S2600T must be connected with each ports of FC switch and for each WWN has only one physical FC link as precondition. 
Suggestions
None.
