Masking can be used to hide LUNs (logical unit numbers) from certain hosts, or to present certain LUNs as read only.
- [Narrator] In this video,…I'll explain Fibre Channel LUN Masking.…All devices in a Fibre Channel Network are identified…by an address called the World Wide Name…and we can mask which LUNs will be presented to which host,…based on the World Wide Name.…So for example, let's take a look at the…Production ESXi host at the bottom left of our screen.…That large hexadecimal number that's shown…is the World Wide Name of the Host Bus Adapter…of this ESXi Host.…
And we want to give this particular host access…to the Production LUN, but not the Development LUN.…And let's assume that the Production ESXi host…is going to be in the same Fibre Channel zone…as our storage array.…So zoning does not give us this level…of per LUN access control.…Zoning is used to control which device can communicate…to which other device,…but it doesn't give you that granular level of control…for access to individual LUNs.…
So we want to ensure that our Production ESXi Host…has access to the Production LUN,…but that it does not have access to the Development LUN.…
