    Hello All

    I intend to implement a Traffic Isolation Zone (TI Zone) to dedicate an specific ISL for a specific Host/Storage communication, isolating this specific traffic from all others in the Fabrics.

    In summary, we have two (02) Fabrics: Two (02) Clustered Hosts (Host 1 and Host 2) zonned to three (03) Storages (Storage 1, Storage 2 and Storage 3).

    These Hosts is zoned to "LOCAL" Storages on LOCAL Switch (STORAGE 2 and STORAGE 3) and to "REMOTE" Storage on REMOTE Switch (STORAGE 1).

    The attached file "traffic_isolation_san.pdf" shows the zoned connections on both fabrics.

    The members of the intended TI Zone in each fabric is depicted in blue.

    My question is:

    As TI Zone implemented in each fabric, can the Hosts still communicate with LOCAL Storages (Storage 2 and Storae 3)?
