When the HBA port of the application server is set to point to point, the S6800E, as the master server (messages are sent from the S6800E to the host), assigns an N_Port ID (0000EF) to the HBA of the application server. However, the application server continues to use its inherent N_Port ID (0000D7), causing all subsequent interactions between the host and storage array to fail. Figure 1-1 shows the packet capturing information.
Therefore, we have the following conclusion:
The WWN of the application server at the storage device side cannot be detected if the port mode of the Emulex LP1000X series HBA is set to point to point.
