Re: merging zones

There's nothing special about the principal switch in this regard. Follow the rules for your source zones and they should merge without an issue.

Re: merging zones

Every zone has to have the same membership on each switch prior to the merge. Not only that, but the members have to be in the same order.In other words, if you have a zone on switch 1 with members "a;b", on switch 2 the zone must contain "a;b" and not "b;a".

Re: merging zones

Sorry for the confusion but I have 2 switches. Both switches don't have any zones with the same name. They are two seperate san fabrics and I want to merge them. I don't have any idea how I get round this error I now have

Joe,Example: If you will merge the switch with currect config, and here is trunking enable, but the second switch don't have a Trunking License you get a Merge Error.
