Zoneset configuration after setting up ISL

Dear All,


  I got a little confused after setting up ISL between 2 brocade san switches. May I know should I use the same zoneset configuration between two san switches? Or I should use different zoneset? Thanks a lot


Best Regards,

Re: Zoneset configuration after setting up ISL

if the switches are successfully connected with ISL(s), they form a single "fabric". the zoneset activation is fabric-wide.

you can have more than one zoneset in a fabric, but then one of them will be active (again fabric-wide), and the rest of them will be just stored in the configuration and inactive (again you'll see that these inactive zonesets are identical in all the fabric switches)
