I know how to create zones on the Brocade 5300 with commands:
aliCreate "CX600_SPA", "21:00:00:20:37:0c:76:8c"
zoneCreate "CX600_SPA_SERVER_A", "CX600_SPA;SERVER_A"
cfgAdd "cfgName", "SERVER_A_ZONE; SERVER_B_ZONE"
But now we're moving to "Virtual Fabrics" in the same Brocade 5300. How do I do that?
Can I "convert" a single fabric 5300 to a multiple-fabric configuration? How?

A quick doc-check (admin guide) to a basic VF config:
fosconfig --enable vf
... enter 'y' and then a reboot
Create logical switch:
lscfg --create FabricID
Set context to newly created switch:
Disable to configure (set domain id etc.) and then enable:
After that, add ports from the physical switch:
e.g. lscfg --config FabricID -port 8-16
After that, happy zoning

--->>> A friend of mine told me that he thought the only way to create Virtual Fabrics was with DCFM. Is that true?
You can use DCFM - Enterprise - to admin VF, but first you must enable the VF mode in the switch as mentioned by MKore.
