Hello all ,
We are merging brocade 48k switches located in each data centre . .
Cfg name on fabric1 is *xxx*
cfg name on fabric2 is "yyy"
Both fabrics are loaded with different configurations and zones .
as per the docs I would assume it won’t allow merge having two different Cfg names ,pls correct me if I am wrong ... .did verify domain id ,zones ,alias are different in each fabric ,except suspected cfg name .
1. If I want to rename one of the Cfg name , would it be disruptive ?is it needs to be done prior to the merge ?If I just want to do this and make sure zone merge tool gives no report after rename ,can I do it if there is no impact ?
2.Durnig the merge ,is there any I/0 disruptive ?

You will not be able to merge 48K CFG name xxx with the other 48K CFG NameYYY or vice versa. But do u want to do that? why? this is a redundant Fabric topolgy. You can merge another 2 48Ks , 1 with xxx and another with yyy.
Pls tell me what do u want to do? Pls find attached SAN migration guide for the same.for merging the SAN sw I have created a doc in Wiki. you can refer that too.
If you find the thread correct then make it correct
