Description
Explanation of Dynamic WWN Feature with Release of Library Code 3.04.03

Starting with 3.04.03 code, when enabling the dynamic World-Wide Name (dWWN) feature, be sure that all drive firmware is at the proper level to support dWWN.

Dynamic WWN feature ensures the customer that they will not have to reconfigure their host systems when a Fibre drive is replaced. To ensure this is the case, all Fibre drives in the library must support dWWN feature in order for the feature to be enabled.
