SAN ZONE Diplicate Entry

Guys, we have this warning in our SAN
WARNING ZONE-DUPLICATE_ENTRY, 3, WARNING - Duplicate entries in zone(XXXX) specification

What will be the implication of this?
The reason we look at this is that 2 of the 10 servers (SAN BOoot) in this switch crashed and we cant' find any issues with regards to the EVA 5000 and servers so we are looking at the switches.

We can see this in both the two switches attached to the servers and facing the EVA5000 controllers about 2 days before the crash.

Crash dump points to the disk.

Please advise.

Delete the duplicates. See ZONE-WARNING in here:

Re: SAN ZONE Diplicate Entry

How many switches total to you have?

This message/warring will occur when you try to connect 2 similarly configured SAN Switches to each other.

I would NOT just start deleting things without understanding why you got the message in the first place.

Can you describe the environment a little more?

Deleting zones can potentially leave your servers without any access to your storage.
