Today I came across a case where the administrator had a bit of an incorrect interpretation of the term “defzone“. Brocade uses defzone in case when no normal zoning configuration is active. A defzone (default zone) is a hidden “dummy” zoning configuration with no members(*). No WWN’s, aliases or port-ID’s ever will be added to a “defzone”.
