Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR MANAGING VIRTUAL INSTANCES OF A PHYSICAL PORT ATTACHED TO A NETWORK
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME PERMETTANT DE GERER DES INSTANCES VIRTUELLES DE PORT PHYSIQUE RELIE A UN RESEAU
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to a method, a computer program product and a system for managing virtual instances of a physical port attached to a network. In a preferred embodiment of the invention the method is based on the Fibre Channel N Port virtualisation for a physical Fibre Channel N Port. Multiple virtual Fibre Channel adapters share a single physical N Port among multiple operating system instances. The invention discloses means for the automatic and persistent generation and administration of unique Worldwide Port Names needed for the N Port virtualisation.
(FR)L invention concerne un procédé, un produit de programme informatique et un système permettant de gérer des instances virtuelles de port physique relié à un réseau. Dans un mode de réalisation préféré de l'invention, ledit procédé est basé sur la virtualisation d'un port N de canal de fibres pour un port physique N de canal de fibres. De multiples adaptateurs de canal de fibres virtuel partagent un port physique N unique parmi les multiples instances du système d'exploitation. L'invention concerne également un organe permettant de générer et d'administrer de manière automatique et persistante des noms de port unique mondiaux nécessaires à la virtualisation de port N.
