You see from the type what type of port it's coming from.

You would then create a zone set with Server2 WWPN and the disks WWPN's to be a part of the same zone set

MDS1 
show running-config zone
The above you can see the WWPN (pwwn) are all group in the zone name SERVER2 vsan 10

Full Zone set (this configured but not being used)
Active Zone Set (this is the one that is active in the fabric)

When all fabric converged the Full and Active zone sets should be the same. Via enhanced zoning via cisco fabric services through the entire fabric FCNS

MDS1 
show zoneset active 


If you now look at N5K1 you'll see that it has the same Zone Set's 

N5K1 
show zoneset active


On the Windows Server you'll see three individual disks and through windows sever  you create a RAID set
