Fabric ISL merger configuration

Hi all, I have a fabric one with these fabric switches connected:

 

Sikworm Brocade 4100 (6.4.0b) + Brocade AP6700 (6.3.2a) + Brocade 6510 (7.2.1)

 

I need to do a merge of the SAN with Brocade 3900, to ultimately left this setting:


Sikworm Brocade 4100 (6.4.0b) + Brocade AP6700 (6.3.2a) Brocade 6510 + (7.2.1) + Brocade 3900

 

Both are in production and fabric to its active configurations, need to do a merge of both fabrics and keep things running smoothly

 

What I have to do and keep in mind to make the merge?

 

regards

Re: Fabric ISL merger configuration

If you need to merge two fabrics each with their own configuration you will need to have a Union of both configurations.

I would back up both configurations before you begin of course.

There is a utility called Fabric Merge which is very useful.

 

See this useful link:

Yes, it should. But it has to be 100% exactly the same zoning config. This means even the order of the zone members in the additional zone has to be the same.
