I am powering down my core swithces this weekend, but the edge switches will remain up, how will this affect my edge switches, besides segmenting the vsan's...my email application is on the edge switches will this disrupt email traffic?
That's a good question. Unless the zoneset is extremely large, or you have a good reason for the edges to not contain the full zoneset, I recommend that distribute full zoneset be enabled on each switch for each VSAN. This way, you are not relying on the cores only to contain the full zoneset. It would be a good idea to back up the zoneset database for each VSAN from the core, if they are currently where the zoning was performed from.
