Need Help on Brocade 200E Switch

Hi All,

I am going to install a new Brocade 200E switch, but not planning to do zoning with Clariion storage.

Is it possible to achieve the connectivity with out use of any zoning? Any conflicts?

You can acheive connectivity without zoning, its not mandatory. But if you have different hosts (Windows/Unix) accessing CX then its very advisable to use zoning.

Also read this thread on the default zone config that exists on a switch
