There are occasions where you need to remove an entire zoning configuration from a switch. One of them is if you need to add a switch to an existing fabric and it still has a configuration in it. If these two conflict the switch will simply segment and the ISL’s get disabled. Another reason might be in case of configuration conflicts where and administrator had made zone changes whilst one switch was not participating in the fabric. Depending on how the switch is set up and the actual fabric state you need to follow different procedures.
