 Configure Block Storage to use Fibre Channel Zone Manager

If Block Storage is configured to use a Fibre Channel volume driver that supports Zone Manager, update cinder.conf to add the following configuration options to enable Fibre Channel Zone Manager.

Make the following changes in the /etc/cinder/cinder.conf file.

Table 2.43. Description of zoning configuration options
Configuration option = Default value Description
zoning_mode = none (StrOpt) FC Zoning mode configured
fc_fabric_names = None (StrOpt) Comma separated list of Fibre Channel fabric names. This list of names is used to retrieve other SAN credentials for connecting to each SAN fabric
fc_san_lookup_service = cinder.zonemanager.drivers.brocade.brcd_fc_san_lookup_service.BrcdFCSanLookupService (StrOpt) FC SAN Lookup Service
zone_driver = cinder.zonemanager.drivers.brocade.brcd_fc_zone_driver.BrcdFCZoneDriver (StrOpt) FC Zone Driver responsible for zone management
zoning_policy = initiator-target (StrOpt) Zoning policy configured by user; valid values include "initiator-target" or "initiator"

To use different Fibre Channel Zone Drivers, use the parameters described in this section.


When multi backend configuration is used, provide the zoning_mode configuration option as part of the volume driver configuration where volume_driver option is specified.


Default value of zoning_mode is None and this needs to be changed to fabric to allow fabric zoning.


zoning_policy can be configured as initiator-target or initiator
