Brocade 7800 port config to prevent fabric merge. 2 fabrics connected to the same 7800

    We have 2 site configuration.  one brocade 7800 at each site.  FCIP has been configured between the 7800's.  There are 2 fabrics per site.  We want to connect fabric A abd B to the same 7800 without merging the local fabrics or local and remote fabrics.  Would like to configure LSAN from one A fabric in production to A fabric in DR.  Is this possible?

    You should have FCR license on both 7800s to configure it this way. Read the FOS admin guide, all the sections about FCR configuration, EX ports setup and LSAN zones - that will include all you need.

    Bear in mind that your linked pair of 7800s will be a single point of failure, and, in a way, you wouldn't have dual redundant SAN, since you'll have a single MetaSAN.
