This article doesn't say what a WWID or World Wide Name is used for within the network. Endpoints, resources, or what? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:31, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

The answer to that is pretty much "yes". I tried to clear that up.( (talk) 03:48, 10 May 2012 (UTC))

I fleshed this whole article out a tad (which included added a short description of the "mapped" format.) What I did not do was link to the separate WWNN/WWPN page, because those acronyms and terms are not distinct enough to merit a separate page. They should probably be just redirected to this article. To wit, those terms are now mentioned, and mentioned in the first paragraph. ( (talk) 03:48, 10 May 2012 (UTC))

What does U/L mean?[edit]

This article uses "U/L" three times but does not explain what that means. (talk) 13:56, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

See MAC_address#Address_details. They are the "unicast" and "local" bits in the MAC address. Don't know how to describe or link it appropriately… --RokerHRO (talk) 10:37, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
