Re: Migration

I'm assuming by SAN you mean "Switch"

They probably just copied over all the zoning information from the Brocade over to the Cisco , nothing major just time consuming (depending on how big your fabric is)

Re: Migration

I'm interested in best practices for replacing Cisco 9000 MDS switches with DCX.
Running config consists of over 300 active zones with some vsans.
What tools beyond SANHealth, should I consider to be well prepared for migration?
I do not know well DCFM software that comes from DCX - but I wonder if its Wizards can make something useful?
