Changes to ZoneSet WITHOUT activating?

Quick question:


Can I change some inconsistencies with the zonesets on a Brocade switch WITHOUT activating the zoneset and causing problems if something is wrong?  In other words, I know there are some broken zonesets that are in the active zoneset. I just want to fix the broken zonesets but not ACTIVATE the zoneset until the weekend so I do not interrupt production traffic.


Feasible?!

Re: Changes to ZoneSet WITHOUT activating?

Assuming you're referring to true Brocade switches (as opposed to the McData "M-Series), it is totally possible. Simply make your adjustments and issue the 'cfgsave' command. No changes are done to the active zoneset (cfg) until you run the 'cfgenable' command.
