How to Merge 2 SANs


I have brought SAN B from the DR site to the main site. Now I want to merge both of them so that some servers in SAN A can access EVA B and Tape library B in SAN B and Vice Versa.

Please give me the steps.

Re: How to Merge 2 SANs

You need to have either the zoning
a) identical on both switches
b) or the one you are adding needs to be empty

There are lots of other things that needs to match.

Easiest is to have one switch empty/reset to factory defaults (or same TOV values etc as on the first switch).

You connect them via an e_port.
