Everything is clear now.

Under CAM, map initiators to hosts, and map hosts to volumes. The so-call host is just a name to connect initiators (FC ports) to the disk volumes.

initiators <> hosts <> volumes

Thanks everyone again!

hbaapi - Fibre Channel Storage Network Industry Association Host Bus Adapter Application Programming Interface (FC SNIA HBA API) DESCRIPTION
The Common HBA API provides a consistent HBA standard interface for accessing information in a Fibre Channel Storage Area Network (SAN) that would be implemented across vendors as a standard 'C' API supported by vendor specific library instances. This API library is thread-safe, but threads should not be cancelled when execution is in the API. The following functions are available in the API for managing a Fibre Channel HBA. This API would be exposed to upper level applications to control SAN functionality. Please refer to for details on structures used. 01. 02. 03. 04. 05. 06. 07. 08. 09. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19.
