QLogic SANbox zoning conversion tool

Hi All,

 

I've got a couple of Qlogic SANbox sanswitches I want to bin and replace with a Brocade 6510.

 

Has anyone got a conversion tool? Save having to do the whole config by hand....

 

Cheers,

 

Sean

Such a tools is generally not available.

Brocade offer with SAN-Health for Free a conversion File from Cisco config for such a Migration, but I'm not sure if this is available for QLogic.

Hi,

 

A message to Brocade. If you want to sell more switches. Invest some time in developing a conversion tool for configs.

This would a real boon to deploying Brocade switches.

Sean,

 

I did something similar for migrations between McData and Brocade. A few simple awk oneliners normally do the trick. I don't know the layout of the Qlogic configuration so I can't help you for now.

 

Let me know if you have an example of the Qlogic layout. Shouldn't be too hard I guess.
