Web Tools Zone Admin vs DCFM Zone Admin

Hello peers,

I have a 3 switch fabric, 2 edge silkworm 200's and a core DCX. I am familiar and comfortable with zone administration using WebTools - Create Alias -> Create Zone - Add to zone config - Enable Config.

How does this differ in DCFM ?

Re: Web Tools Zone Admin vs DCFM Zone Admin

The only difference is that it consolidates things a little better in DCFM.

You can do everything you need to do, but it has (in my opinion) a more user-friendly interface.

You can perform all the same functions (and more) on DCFM as you can on Web Tools.  I like to do everything from DCFM because we have a very large environment, and I like to have all the switches in one place where I can see what's happening.

As you probably know already, you can still do your zoning from Web Tools without using DCFM if you choose to do it that way.

Thats my 2 cents.
