i can't seem to find any zoning guide for iSCSI on FCX-624 or any iSCSI enabled switches. Can you please redirect me to the right place of the documentation if there's any? thank you.

Thanks for trying to help. I have tried support and they have sent me the wrong documentation. They sent me configuring iSCSI on FCX. That's not what we need. I am pretty sure there's zoning guide out there for iSCSI. I am more of a Cisco FC guy and have limited Brocade experience (DCX but fiber not iSCSI). Commands are similar to IOS/NXOS but i can't figure out zoning. I'll reach out again to support.

I've received the email thank you.
as per my opinion, - i want to say explicitly with caution and avoid misunderstanding - this Platform don't have such a features as per you request
->what's the equivalent of zonecreate in iSCSI to create zones?
I think to create such "zoning" you must have Layer 3, then create different VLAN's, and this VLAN can maintained different target/initiator group/IP in a iSCSI Storage Area Network
furthermore I cannot find additional Information that this platform can formed or maintain "Zone"
Again is my stupid opinion !!!

I respect your opinion and i don't consider it stupid . In fairness, I am hoping that somebody from support will give me what I am looking for. I mean on iSCSI platform, there should be a procedure on how to give access to host initiators to their storage targets. There's got to be a documentation out there but you have to find it. I need to continue searching. The hunt continues !
So from a zoning perspective, my guess is you have to use VLAN to assign ports then from there, you can hopefully start the next step to zone those iSCSI logins so they will start showing up on the array as iSCSI initiators/hosts then you can start creating storage groups and present iSCSI luns. That's my 2 cents.
