Question on Activating and Deactivating Zonesets

Unanswered Question
Jul 6th, 2010
  • I have deleted some zones in a zoneset
  • These zones do not show up in the running config but they are there if you show active zones on this vsan
  • The only way that I know of is to deactivate the zoneset
  • But deactivating zoneset puts all the existing zones to drop traffic.

PS: all zones are in the same VSAN ans same ZONESET

Is there any other way to delete the zones permanently other than deactivating the zoneset?

I have this problem too.

if you want to get rid of them then

- save your running config

- update the zoneset config by removing each unwanted zone from the active zoneset (no member...)

- delete each unwanted zone (no zone name ... )

- activate the zoneset again

- verify that the host connectivity is not affected

you dont have to deactivate a zoneset to delete zones out of it

Thank you for your quick reply. I guess then we ONLY execute the "no zoneset activate name zsname vsan vsanId" when there are no more active zones left.
