Switch zone config change --- Sequence of operation


Could I get some indepth information on the state change when we activate a a new zone config

Example. In a switch there are two identical zone configuration but different names.

1)      What will happen If i change/swap the zone config.  Will it disable the current config and enable a fresh one.

2)      Will the host connected via earlier config still run( as the domain config is identical).

1 Yes, there can only be one acive config, but multiple saved configs.

2 Depends if the zoning for that particulairy host isn't changed them yes.
