san refresh Gen 4 Fos 7.x to Gen 6 Fos 8.x: can we use saved 7.x configupload into configdownload from 8.x

context is how to refresh a single DCX director based SAN ...outgoing DCX , newly purchased Gen 6 director.

 

Space contraints mean we need to save config from 7.x ..as configupload file, use this to populate zoning database etc on newly configured Gen 6 Director.

 

Question is can configupload/download be used between FOS 7.x and FOS 8.x ?

 

Thanks !

Hi,

 

there could be some settings blocking the configupload.

I would recommend to temporary ISL the old and new switch to propagate the zoning database. And configure the X6 from scratch.
