Hi,

here are some answers

What is mean by principle switch? --> This has been answered 100 times here please have a look

how can I differ from normal switch?--> This has been answered 100 times here please have a look

what is the importance of having principal switch?--> This has been answered 100 times here please have a look


seeing zonecfg is same in all members of same fabric. why is it so?--> The entire fabric shares the same zoning DB content. WIth other words all changes are replicated to all switches in the fabric

while upgrading FOS which one should be first?--> please have a look in the Brocade Firmware best practice guide. Mainly it depends on your SAN it self.

Regards,

Andreas
