Re: Hanging Zone and Alias

Hi DattaSai,


hanging zone/alias in SANHealth means that the zoned Device was OFFLINE during the SANHealth capture.


Might be due to...


a) The zone/device/alias is old and obsolete and should be deleted for ZoneDB cleanup.

b) the device was just offline during capture for e.g. mainenance/sever reboot reasons.

c) the device/wwn is some kind of zoned hot standby device and offline by intention.
