Zoning transaction aborted Bad Zone Config

Hi

Any ideas how I can determine what in my zoning setup is causing the above error message each time we try and do anything with the zoning? errShow and errDump just show me what is appearing in the event log. We're using an IBM 2005-b16 (Brocade Silkworm 200E) at FOS 6.2.2c

Regards

Niall

Re: Zoning transaction aborted Bad Zone Config

Do you have an Error message ID associated with this message (i.e. "ZONE-xxxx")

Re: Zoning transaction aborted Bad Zone Config

By downgrading from FOS 6.2.2c on the Brocade 200E down to v5.3.2c, I was able to update the zoning config. This ties in with the points mentioned in this post:

http://community.brocade.com/thread/4054?start=0&tstart=0

I don't understand how a version of software on the BC switch could affect my ability to configure the zoning on the 200E. Could anyone shed some light on this?

And in a similar vein, is there somewhere where it is definitively stated that the 200E can/can't support switch module X at version Y?
