Peer zoning in mixed fabric

Hi all


I have planning the update of our 6510 in FOS8 to use peer zoning , but we have 5300 with FOS7.4.1 in the same fabric.


Do you know if it's possible to use peer zoning in this fabric if all FC define with peer zoning are on  the 6510 ?

Re: Peer zoning in mixed fabric

Peer zoning was introduced in 7.4. You should be okay to mix but you can't use aliases in peer zones unless all switches are at least FOS 8.1.

If you do use aliases you would end up with fabric segmentation.
