NPIV is enabled on a Brocade SAN Switch and two sets of Virtual Fabric WWPNs have been configured on Microsoft Hyper-VM, but only one set of WWPNs is visible and other set is not visible.


 Hyper-V automatically alternates between the Set A and Set B WWN addresses during a live migration. This ensures that all LUNs are available on the destination host before the migration and that no downtime occurs during the migration
