You do not have to issue the copy running-config startup-config command to store the active zone set.
However, you need to issue the copy running-config startup-config command to explicitly store full
zone sets. It is not available across switch resets.
If you deactivate the active zone set in a VSAN that is also configured for IVR, the active IVR zone set
(IVZS) is also deactivated and all IVR traffic to and from the switch is stopped. This deactivation can
disrupt traffic in more than one VSAN. Before deactivating the active zone set, check the active zone
analysis for the VSAN (see the
IVZS, you must reactivate the regular zone set (see the
section on page
If the currently active zone set contains IVR zones, activating the zone set from a switch where IVR is
not enabled disrupts IVR traffic to and from that VSAN. We strongly recommend that you always
activate the zone set from an IVR-enabled switch to avoid disrupting IVR traffic.
The pWWN of the virtual target does not appear in the zoning end devices database in Fabric Manager.
If you want to zone the virtual device with a pWWN, you must enter it in the Add Member to Zone dialog
box when creating a zone. However, if the device alias is in enhanced mode, the virtual device names
appear in the device alias database in the Fabric Manager zoning window. In this case, users can choose
to select either the device alias name or enter the pWWN in the Add Member to Zone dialog box.
Set the device alias mode to enhanced when using SDV (because the pWWN of a virtual device could
For example, SDV is enabled on a switch and a virtual device is defined. SDV assigns a pWWN for the
virtual device, and it is zoned based on the pWWN in a zone. If you later disable SDV, this configuration
is lost. If you reenable SDV and create the virtual device using the same name, there is no guarantee that
it will get the same pWWN again. Hence, you would have to rezone the pWWN-based zone. However,
if you perform zoning based on the device-alias name, there are no configuration changes required if or
