By logical switch, do you mean VSANs or NPIV?

Either way the answer is yes, but I believe that you are asking about VSANs.

Brocade has their version of VSANs called *Admin Domains* and they work the same way in that you will have separate services running for each domain (group of ports) that you create.

NPIV has been available for quite while and it is dependent on the version of FOS that you are running.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply first.

We got 3 4/256 switches, 2 switch are on our main data center and the other 1 is on the backup data center. We are looking for a solution to get 2 separate fabrics using those 3 switches. it seems only logical switch can meet our requirements.
