Hi Experts ,
We have 2 data centers , each contains 4 FOS. The FOS are located as below:
FIS005 (uplink switch connected to a very very old MPX110 ISCSI router on FC1 port )
FIS006 (uplink switch connected to a very very old MPX110 ISCSI router on FC2 port)
FIS007(uplink switch connected to a very very old MPX110 ISCSI router on FC 1 port )
FIS008 (uplink switch connected to a very very old MPX110 ISCSI router on FC2 port)
there should be 2 fabrics (Fabric 1 composing of FIS005,9,7,11 and Fabric 2 composing of FIS006,10,8,12). fabric 2 is up and no problem. Fabric 1 after a power cut in our data center has become segmented :( , which means i see 5 and 9 in one fabric and 7,11 in the other , when i compared the zone details for 5 and 7 there were discrepencies. (as you can guess by now that 5 and 7 pair forms FCIP route 1 for DC to DR communication and 6 and 8 pair forms FCIP route 2 for DC to DR communication). I took some time and then created the conflicting zones and compared the zones again on 5 and 7 - this time they looked identical. I disabled and enabled the uplink ports on 5 and 7 .. but alas , the issue still persists. I don know what is going wrong. In MPX manager i can see both the paths are looking ok , the LED on the switch port is solid green when i check web tools it says locked G port. What else can i do ???????? please help me if you need any more information i can provide.

Also, i am wondering if you can provide me an alternate replication solution here please. I hate these jurassic MPX devices and would like to propose some cool new gen product to our management.

show here, however you should provide for more info about Brocade Switch Type/model and FOS release.
