I think the default switchport mode on the 9148 is Fx, so you would need to configure the ISL interface switchport mode E (or auto) and place it in the desired VSAN. When the ISL comes up the zonesets will merge.
You will want to enable "zoneset distribute full vsan x" so the full zoning databse is also merged.
Enhanced zoning will lock the vsan so that only one person can make zoning changes in the VSAN.
Be sure the new switches are running the same version of NX-OS.
Here is a whitepaper of merging two existing switches.
Thanks for the reply. You have described the setup as I plan to configure. I have the E ports ready and ZoneSet distribution is enabled.
I will enable enhanced zoning, just have basic at the minute.
I had read the white papers but am un-sure about the best practices.
To me it would seem that it would be better to have one ZoneSet across the two switches. If I removed the ZoneSet on the DR side and setup the ISL, I presume the ZoneSet on the Prod side would appear on the DR side and then I could add the DR Zones to the ZoneSet and activate.
I could then create a zone between the pwwn on each SAN and activate again.
Does this sound ok? I want to set it up to be as stable as possible and follow best practices.
