How to Add a switch MDS 9148S to existing cisco mds fabric

Hello,

We have one fabric composed by only 1 MDS 9148 switches, and now, we want to add a new 9148 S MDS switch to this fabric.

one VSAN (100) and one zone set activated on this switch.

Now, we need to add a new switch in fabric. This new switch is also one MDS 9148. no zoning configuration there, only vsan 100 created.

ISL Link is already setup between these 2 switch using port fc1/47 & fc1/48.

fc1/47 1 auto on trunking swl TE 16 -- core
fc1/48 1 auto on trunking swl TE 16 -- core


could you please guide further steps to follow on both switches.

switch(config)# zone mode enhanced vsan x

All Vsan’s should be allowed on the links between both the switches, and should be in trunk mode.

#show logging, may show something like the below if you don't have matching modes:

 

entry number 172: ZONE-2-ZS_MERGE_FAILED

%$VSAN 10%$ Zone merge failure, isolating interface port-channelXX
