Interop Mode

Hi,

I have attached the logical diagram. Please help me in finding the answers for the below.

1. Which Interop mode I shld use for the VSANs. so that the Production

Switches Domain ID's are not affected ?

2. Which switch I shld choose as the principle switch

3. From Which switch I shld make the configuration changes in future.

4. Does this configuration supports

mixed zoning (Hard and Soft zoning)

5. Any prerequisite/ procedure to

introduce MDS to the existing fabric ..

Thanks

Kamal

Re: Interop Mode

Inter-VSAN routing (IVR) allows a device that is in one VSAN to communicate with a device that is located in another VSAN. IVR was introduced in MDS SAN-OS Release 1.3(2a). MDS SAN-OS Release 1.3(4a) introduced IVR for all interop modes within a configuration, so that inter-VSAN routing is now possible between all interop mode VSANs
