Dark Fibre connectivity

Hello All,

One quick query when i connecting the two san network using the dark fibre the SAN will merge right ?  Is there any solution we can seprate the san network from the dark fibre solution?

Re: Dark Fibre connectivity

If nothing collides (unique Domain IDs across both, zoning identical in both, etc) then the SANs will merge.

If something collides then they will not merge - but then why connect them in the first case?

If you don't want them to merge but still connect a few devices in both SANs I'd recommend looking into Fibre Channel Routing.
