FC Target Ports Profile (Common Profiles, Clause 8)
The front-end FC Ports must be associated to "SCSIProtocolEndpoints" through "CIM_DeviceSAPImplementation" associations and to "ComputerSystems" through "CIM_HostedAccessPoint" associations. (Discovery uses the "CIM_NetworkPort" superclass for associator and reference calls.)
|PermanentAddress||Required. Must match the SCSIProtocolEndpoint.Name property.|
SCSIProtocolEndpoints are associated to physical ports through CIM_DeviceSAPImplementation associations and to the ComputerSystem through CIM_HostedAccessPoint associations.
|Name||Required. The Name property value must be an NAA formatted hex string that matches the target port exactly. The NameFormat property is ignored.|
|ConnectionType||Required. Must be set to the following value: FC (2)|
|Role||Required. Must be set to one of the following values:
There is no support for back-end (initiator) ports.
There must be an exact match between the following. If these do not match, masking will fail. See additional restrictions when Group Masking is implemented.
- The WWPN presented on the FC interface
- The WWPN exposed by the HBA API for the attached port
The FC Node Name may be provided through the OtherIdentifyingInfo and IndentifyingDescriptions properties of the CIM_ComputerSystem class. If this value is available, it will be displayed by the Get-TargetPort cmdlet for informational purposes only.
