    B & C have to be correct. Zoning does nothing as far as how LUNs are presented or controlled on the storage array. That would be Masking on the array that does that job.

    Zoning is setting up connections between the servers HBAs and the array ports (hard zoning), or setting up port to port connections on the FC switch.
