I have to replace a HBA on RedHat5.3 due to card failure.

A tech guy asked me that "Check your FC-Switch Zoning Type of Port Zoning or not? , because if host accessed by WWNN, you'll need to update FC-switch config"

Is this below result on Brocade FC 300 showing Port-Zoning configuration or not?

fcsw03:admin> switchshow
switchName:     xxxxx
switchType:     71.2
switchState:    Online
switchMode:     Native
switchRole:     Principal
switchDomain:   1
switchId:       fffc01
switchWwn:      10:00xxxxxxxxxxxxx
zoning:         ON (zones)
switchBeacon:   OFF

use fabricos command zoneshow, which will give you the answer :

wwpn zoning : you have zonename with wwpn members (example : 21:00:00:24:xxxxxxxxxxxx ; 50:06:01:60:xxxxxxxxxxxx).

port zoning : you have zonename with each member like domain_id,port_id (example : 1,1 ; 1,6 is switchDomain 1 port 1 zoned with switchDomain 1 port 6)

PS : in case you have fancy names as zone members, you most probaly have aliases defined in the san switch. Use fabricos alishow to get the mapping between alias name and port/wwpn.
