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?
