Cabling and Zoning RPA Reference Diagrams

hxman_100

We just receiver 2 RPA's one for each site that also has VNX block storage. SAN switching will be MDS 9000's.

My 2 questions:

 

1) I noticed 4 FC ports in the back of the RPA, how do I cable these to the SAN switches and how does different vsan's effect the zoning of the RPAs?

2) Splitters, from reading the documentation do we have to install some sort of splitter software on the VNX, it was not 100% clear.

 

We will be integrating the RPAs with VMware SRM.

 

Thanks
