Is there a way to find the following?
1. Inactive zones. There are bunch of decommed hosts and we would like to clean up.
2. Host which do not have redundant connection to a fabric. We want to remediate those before a upcoming fabric migration.
We have CLI, web too, SANHealth and BNA(Trial version) at our disposal.
Solved! Go to Solution.

With command "zone --validate", the switch will show the Active zoning and, in it, which members of each zone are fully logged in the Fabric. So that you can check which zones are not active (you have to check that, efectively, those zones does not correspond to any host that is temporary shutdown).

Thanks for the info.
So everything that shows up from "zone --validate" is inactive?
It shows two sections- "Defined configuration" and "Effective configuration"

Let me show it to you with an example:
I run "zone --validate" on a switch and it shows the following:
SWITCH:felipon> zone --validate
~ - Invalid configuration
* - Member does not exist
# - Invalid usage of broadcast zone
As you can see, the output of the command shows 4 active zones in the Effective zoneset:
As you see, with this command you can check the state of each zone, and its members. And it can help you find which zones are not required anymore.
