VE port segmented (zone conflict)


We have FCIP configured between Brocade DCX and 7500 Extension switch. We recently had a power outage and since then the 7500 is throwing error regarding the VE port being segmented. I checked the output of command 'defzone --show' which turns out to be as below;

B7500-RT:maintadmin> defzone --show

Default Zone Access Mode

        committed - All Access

        transaction - No Transaction


Also the port is in online status but segmented. Kindly advise if any solution for the same.

Re: VE port segmented (zone conflict)


Please check active zoning in both ends, maybe, during the power outage a zone change was performed.
