Charmed NPIV

Does anybody knows about NPIV - is it works or not in vsphere 6.7?

It doesn't matter for what purposes do I need to use that technology - for now I cannot understand does it works or not.

I have enabled NPIV for VM and .... nothing happened in VM and in FC switch. Nothing at all!

What I do wrong?

On ESXi-host side FC HBA works well because I have presented them from storage several LUNs.

On FC Switch side NPIV capability enabled for all ports, but I cannot see WWN's of VM in FC switch. Why?

Does anybody knows?

Hi

You can check this article, it's old but maybe helps you.

NPIV: N-Port ID Virtualization - VMware vSphere Blog

You need to add VM's WWN into each zone on FC switch.
