looks like the concept is very similar to SmartZoning on Cisco.

Hi Ayas,

Peer zoning is a new feature for Brocade.

The links you sent, for the Administrator guide, would be our main documentation resource for CS.

Note that there is a course available you could follow which explains the peer zoning as well.

Course name: "Connectrix Fabric OS 7.4 and CMCNE 12.4"

Not sure if you have access to EMC Education Services or not, but that would also be a good source.

Does Dell EMC officially support peer zoning? The zoning best practice article (KB322728) says to use Single Initiator Zoning, and I've had Support recently tell me that only Single Initiator Zoning is supported. The Brocade admin guide makes a clear distinction between peer zoning and Single Initiator Zoning. Thanks.
