    Hi ,


    I have "N( P+Q)" number of Server FC Adapter ports , "P" of which is connected to  SAN -1  & "Q" of which is connected to "SAN 2"

    ( The SAN can be phyiscal SAN or  logically segmented SAN). 


    I want to provide the User  an abilility to automatically configure adapters ports based on the SAN in which the ports are hooked  to

    . I am calling this as a SAN ID .


    I would like to know  Is there a unique Identifier that can represent a phyiscal or logical fabric exist in Brocade fabric .


    Does  "Zone set name" or Fabric name  can help me take such a grouping decision .

    Is Zoneset name  and  Fabric Name  globally uniqueue  attribute.

    Appreciate  your help in understanding  a way to uniquely identify a SAN fabric ( logical or physical)


    Hope I mentioned the question clear
