How to change zone configuration under active zone set ?

Hi All,

I hope to be there someone to quickly help me with the below issue.

We have to change a network card of one sever that is connected to two Nexus 5000 switches. Our Storage environment is a multihop FCoE => each NEXUS 5000 (where the hosts are aggregated) is connected to a Nexus 7000 (where the Storage is linked)

On the Nexus side is configured zoning. After the server network card was changed, the asociated WWN was changed too. To update the zoning configuration i have changed under each zone the old WWN with the new one.

Now i have two issues:

1/ On the Nexus 5000 switches if i initiate 'show zoneset active' i see the old WWN still used under the zone even if in the running-config is the new WWN. Is any configuration steps order that must be made or is not possible to change a active zoneset configuration ?

2/ On the Nexus 7000, FCoE VDC, the new changes are not commited if i try 'zone commit vsan X'. The new zone settings are added at the bottom of the configuration after the line 'zoneset activate name Zoneset_VSANX vsan X' but are not commited.

And here is the same output of the 'show zoneset active' command for the new WWN.

 

I will appreciate any detail that can help me to solve this issue.

 

Kind Regards,

FCalias is used for zoning

FCalias is used for zoning only

FCalias can contain multiple PWWNs

FCalias is configured per VSAN

FCalias is propagated via distributing the full zoneset

Did you configure full zoneset distribution ? 

Please activate the changed configuration, by activation of the zoneset ? It's not disruptive for existing nonchanged zones !

Hi, You should activate the

Hi,

 

You should activate the zoneset distribution in each switch, this way everytime you activate a zoneset, that very zoneset you've activated will be distributed throughout the whole Fabric.

 

E.g:

mds-9509# show zone status vsan 44

VSAN: 44 default-zone: deny distribute: active only Interop: default

 

mds-9509(config)# zoneset distribute full vsan 44

mds-9509# show zone status vsan 44

VSAN: 44 default-zone: deny distribute: full Interop: default

 

check the status of this parameter, change it if required, and re-activate the zoneset and all the zones should be distributed.

Questions:are you using fc

Questions:

are you using fc-alias ?

are you using device-alias ?

are you doing enhanced zoning

Normally if you change a pwwn, you have to do a

no zone name xyz pwwn old-pwwn

and then

zone name xyz pwwn new-pwwn

Then you have to activeate the appropiate zoneset

Can you provide us the output of

show zone xyz vsan ..

show zoneset .... vsan ...

show zoneset active ... vsan

and this on N5k and N7k

On the Nexus 5K is used fc

On the Nexus 5K is used fc-alias. In Nexus 7009 are mapped directly the WWN's to the zones.

Is not used enhanced zoning.

How can be activated the zoneset without disruptions ?

How can be commited the changes on the nexus 7K switch ?

Below are the requested outputs for the zones that use the new pWWN's.

Thank you for your help!I

Thank you for your help!

I have re-activated the zoneset and the new WWN's was used.

Is no full zoneset configuration.

I have one more question - on the Nexus 7K switch if i initiate the 'show run' i see after the 'zoneset activate name Zoneset_VSAN3 vsan 3' the lines configured by me for the new WWN:

zone name vfc1401_vnx1_spa11 vsan 3
  pwwn 50:06:01:61:3e:e4:37:28
  pwwn 21:00:00:c0:dd:25:ed:59

zone name vfc1401_vnx1_spb10 vsan 3
  pwwn 50:06:01:61:3e:e4:37:28
  pwwn 21:00:00:c0:dd:25:ed:59

If i initiate 'show zoneset' i see also only these new lines but no all the other zones.

If i initiate 'show zoneset active' i see all the zones .

Question: i must commit something here in order to include the new lines under the zoneset configuration ?

Hi,

 

You should activate the zoneset distribution in each switch, this way everytime you activate a zoneset, that very zoneset you've activated will be distributed throughout the whole Fabric.

 

E.g:

mds-9509# show zone status vsan 44

VSAN: 44 default-zone: deny distribute: active only Interop: default

 

mds-9509(config)# zoneset distribute full vsan 44

mds-9509# show zone status vsan 44

VSAN: 44 default-zone: deny distribute: full Interop: default

 

check the status of this parameter, change it if required, and re-activate the zoneset and all the zones should be distributed.
