Re: Zoning Best Practice?

I played with peer zoning a bit, but ran into a significant downside:

From the FOS Administrators guide (pp 356)

Peer Zones are configured and managed using zone commands with the

--peerzone

option.

In the Peer Zone, devices must be identified as either WWN or D,I devices. Mixing WWN and D,I

device identification within a single Peer Zone is not allowed. Aliases are not supported as devices for

a Peer Zone. 


..........

If you have a large and complex environment, then aliases are pretty much essential to keeping things clear and readable.  Maintaining peer zones, when they are just a pile of WWNs, is going to be a difficult, and error prone, undertaking.
