Hi , I was troubleshooting the issue faced by friend. He was unable to add zone to existing cfg.
I done some due diligence and found that cfgshow command don’t show anything under defined configuration but it does show same cfgname under effective configuration.
cfgactvshow will dispaly the effective configuration details while cfgshow will also show effective but nothing under defined configuration.
I believe to add zone to cfg first you should have cfg in defined configuration then only you can do cfgenable or cfgsave.
Not sure how he lost the defined configuration.
I checked in same forum one of the guy has done switchdisable and switchenable which worked well for him. But is there any other way ??

Try a cfgsave in order to copy the Effective config to the defined one.
If you define a new zone, you will create it in the defined config, so be careful when doing this if the defined config is empty.
If the fabric consists of more than one switch, you should work in the core one.
Please, let me know if running cfgsave was useful.

Is it the one in the core of the network (what about an cascaded fabric then).
Or the one having the principal role, which I normally use btw.
