Each VSAN has a full database and an active database.
Active zone sets cannot be changed, without activating a full zone database.
Active zone sets are preserved across switch reboots.
Changes to the full database must be explicitly saved.
Zone reactivation (a zone set is active and you activate another zone set) does not disrupt existing
If required, you can additionally configure the following zone features:
Propagate full zone sets to all switches on a per VSAN basis.
Change the default policy for unzoned members.
Interoperate with other vendors by configuring a VSAN in the interop mode. You can also configure
one VSAN in the interop mode and another VSAN in the basic mode in the same switch without
disrupting each other
Bring E ports out of isolation.
