Is Fibre Channel (FC) switch zoning essential?
- Fibre Channel (FC)
- Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
- NVMe over Fibre Channel (FC-NVMe)
- An FC, FC-NVMe or FCoE zone is a logical grouping of one or more ports within a fabric.
- For devices to be able to see each other, connect, create sessions with one another, and communicate, both ports need to have a common zone membership.
- Single initiator zoning is recommended.
