I have recently implemented DCX (virtual fabrics) in our environment and have below questions folks..
**How LSAN zones works through backbone router.(I am using two DCX-4S as a backbone router).And I have two edge fabrics(created from DCX as logical switches/fabrics) in either side of DCX-4S.
**What is Frontdomain ID , Phantom ID, XLate ID's and how it works in importing / exporting devices.
**If you have any document which explains frontdomain id or xlate id's it would be a great help
**Please let me know if more information required for understanding the infrastructure.
Thanks in advance..

the FOS Admin Guide is a good point of entry.
In addition Brocade offers a book called Multiprotocol Routing for SANs from Josh Judd (ISBN: 0-7414-2306-5) which explains this topic quite good.
Did you create this config as a test or did you plan to use it in production?
Did you have really a strong reason to run Virtual Fabrics?
Keep in mind that all additional overhead will take a risk of management/admin errors.
I hope this helps,
