IBM blade center MDS switch has zoneset activation errors
We have a core 9513 switch with 6000 zones, when we try to active the zone, we can zone activation errors on the small blade chassi switches.Does any one know the limit of zones the blade center switches can support.
Also how can I copy a active zonesel to the full zoneset database and what is the difference?
Re: IBM blade center MDS switch has zoneset activation errors
Max number of zones are depending on SAN OS or NX-OS release
Before San OS 3.0(1) limit at 2000 zones
San OS 3.0(1) and later The maximum number of zones per VSAN has increased from 2000 to 8000. The maximum number of zones in the fabric is 8000
Command to copy active zoneset to full zoneset
mds# zone copy active-zoneset full-zoneset vsan xx
The different Active Zoneset and Full Zoneset
Each VSAN can have multiple zone sets but only one zone set can be active at any given time.
•When you create a zone set, that zone set becomes a part of the full zone set.
•When you activate a zone set, a copy of the zone set from the full zone set is used to enforce zoning, and is called the active zone set. An active zone set cannot be modified. A zone that is part of an active zone set is called an active zone.
•The administrator can modify the full zone set even if a zone set with the same name is active. However, the modification will be enforced only upon reactivation.
•When the activation is done, the active zone set is automatically stored in persistent configuration. This enables the switch to preserve the active zone set information across switch resets.
•All other switches in the fabric receive the active zone set so they can enforce zoning in their respective switches.
•Hard and soft zoning are implemented using the active zone set. Modifications take effect during zone set activation.
•An FC ID or Nx port that is not part of the active zone set belongs to the default zone and the default zone information is not distributed to other switches.
