NetApp Training Brain Dump: DHCP and Soft SAN Zoning

Quick note I feel deserves to be called out: I believe there is no way to set an interface to DHCP.  Wild!

Oh, and one more note: "soft" FC SAN zoning does not actually block traffic between ports/WWN's.  It functions by creating silos in the fabric naming service, essentially refusing to do a lookup for any ports/WWN's not in the zone of the requester.  "Hard" SAN zoning functions very similar to vlans in a router, blocking traffic destined for ports they're not allowed to reach.
