  • 1.  Enable NEW Zoning Configuration - Disruptive or not

    Posted 06-27-2014 02:09 AM

    Hi Experts,

     

    Take scenario below:

     

    Current effiective zone config is "EffectiveConfig".

    There are zones "Old_zone_1" and "Old_zone_2" sitting inside "EffectiveConfig".

     

    If I do perform zoning in this way:

    1. Create a new zone, "New_zone_3".

    2. Create a new config, "New_EffectiveConfig".

    3. Copy all existing and new zones into new config, which mean "New_EEffectiveConfig" is now consists of "Old_zone_1", "Old_zone_2" and "New_zone_3".

    4. cfgEnable "New_EffectiveFabric".

    5. cfgSave.

    6. Leave "EffectiveConfig" there, active back in case roll back is needed.

     

    Will I cause fabric disruptive at step (4)?

     

    Thank you.

    hi,

     

    Nope, no disruption should occur when enabling a new config. Hosts in Old_zone1 and Old_zone_2 should not be affected by the change.

     

    Rgds,
