I assume you want to do this to avoid RSCN traffic. One way to avoid this when creating a wide area SAN is to use a gateway between SAN islands that utilize the iFCP protocol rather than the FC-IP protocol. iFCP isolates SAN traffic within an island unless the destination is at the remote location.Chris
