Re: Virtual Fabric enabled on two switches



VF is enabled per default. I would also agree to Marian and would consider leaving it enabled, it does not harm.

Disruptive reboot is not really worth the thing you are trying to achive in my eyes. However if you choose to do it nothing configuration like, etc. will be lost.

Re: Virtual Fabric enabled on two switches

Disabling vf went very smooth and all it took was a reboot.   All hosts on that switch were dual attached as we have 2 fabrics so no impact at all on host side.  


We have about 25 switches and only these 2 had the vf turned ON.  While it may not cause anything we wanted to be consistent accross the board and have them all configured the same. 


If this feature will be needed in the future we would need to turn it ON.


Thanks for all your help and suggestions.
