Array LUN name format

The array LUN name is a path-based name that includes the devices in the path between the V-Series system and the storage array, ports used, and the SCSI LUN ID on the path that the storage array presents externally for mapping to hosts.

On a V-Series system operating in 7-Mode, there are two names for each array LUN because there are two paths to each LUN, for example, brocade3:6.126L1 and brocade15:6.126L1.

Array LUN format for systems operating in 7-Mode and releases prior to 8.0
