Nexus 5k with FCoE and FC

Hi,

We currently have a pair of Nexus 5k's using FCoE.

Switch 1 is using vsan 11 (vlan 11) and Switch 2 is using vsan 12 (vlan 12), this is serving FCoE to the UCS system.

We have a physical server that we need to connect to the Nexus 5k's via FC. Can we create a new vsan on each switch for this physical server ?

I read that you can only have 1 zoneset active at a time, but i'm not sure if this is only 1 zoneset, or it's 1 zoneset per vsan ?

Regards

I've had a chance to test this on some lab nexus 5k's and can confirm the following:

  • you can create multiple vsans to segment departments or customers
  • some cisco documentation states you can only have 1 zoneset active at a time and other documentation states you can have 1 zoneset per vsan active at a time. I can confirm that it is actually 1 zoneset per vsan active at any time.
