Dear friends,


We trying to create a new hostgroup using Storage Navigator, but HBA's WWN of our IBM aix are not showed as one of avaliable devices. So we can't perform task. Zonning are ok, brocade swithes detect WWN at port, etc.


Can "device type" identified as "Unknow" be a problem here? It's not identified as initiator or target. Target is my VSP, but in my AIX version (5.3) i have no options to change it to "initiator". Or anyone know some trick to change it?


Thanks for any advice.
