Used to be that HBAs could act as initiators sometimes and targets sometimes.

This led to initiator based zoning to avoid IO timeouts.

Nowadays Target based zoning is good enough.
AIX - Ignores RSCNs and is OK with Target based zoning
SOLARIS - RSCNs are reported in the syslog
WINDOWS - ?????
LINUX - ????
HP-UX - ?????
