Do we require to save Zone database somewhere outside of SAN switch ?

What is best practise for zone database ? Do we require to save Zone database somewhere outside of SAN switch ? We have 4 san switches in fabric. zone database is saved only on principal switches or all 4 switches ?

@npatel46

 

each switch - Standalone - have his own config, excepted when TWO or more Switches are connected - ISL = Inter Switch Link -

such a config is called Fabric, is such case the config is propagated on all Switches in the Fabric

 

Best Practices is to have TWO Fabric in example Fabric_A and Fabric_B

 

when you say "We have 4 san switches in fabric." is this a single Fabric ?

 

post here the output from "fabricshow"
