    Yes it is supposed to be one of three switches that are supposed to work as a secondary "fabric 2" I would assume that by shared config that the three switches should be working together and have the same zone config. What is the process of backing up the configs?

    Pick the switch which has the CORRECT zoning that you want to keep, either SW1 or SW2 or SW3. 


    On the OTHER switches, that you do NOT want to maintain the zoning, and have it accept the existing zoning from the good zoning cfg file perform these commands:


    1. portdisable ( all ISL ports involved) 
    2. cfgdisable 
    3. cfgclear 
    4. cfgsave 
    5. defzone –allaccess 
    6. portenable (all ISL 
    ports involved) 


    If you want to make a copy of the cfg before clearing it on the switches which have existing cfg files, use the configupload command to save the switch configuration(including the zoning elements and members) to an external FTP server;
