Going a little bit further, I ran into problems initializing vxvm disks under this situation, the cXtYdZ device (with the Y as the backend FC WWN) name is rejected by vxvm, I have to change the naming method to use enclosure based names for the disks and using the <enclosure name>_<disk_no>.
does anyone know why vxvm won't recognize the different cXtYdZ name, does it have a limit on the length of the Y?
