HP Fiber Channel Enclosure SVC appearing in Storage Devices on Esxi 5

Dear Experts,

I need some clarification for attached screen shots, Environment is:

- Two DL 380 Gen8 acting as vmware hosts running Esxi 5

- HP MSA Storage P2000

All hardware connected as highly available using two SAN switches.

From attached screen shot 1, Please check the highlighted item, it shows 'HP Fiber channel enclosure Svc Dev, I know it is coming from Storage but is this usual ? OR I need to take some action for this

From attached screen shot 2, I noticed that we presented Lun 1 as 'storage1' and Lun 2 as 'storage2' from our SAN storage to vmware and now today I noticed under storage > devices that it is showing same LUN numbers for the local attached disk and CD rom, check the highlighted item in image and look for local attached disk and cdrom Lun number, How vmware allowed to use same LUN numbers for datastores ? OR it is maintaining local hardware of server separately? Any problems due to this ?

Please advise.
