Naming conventions

Naming zones and zone configurations is flexible. You can devise prefixes to differentiate between zones used for production, backup, recovery, or testing. One configuration should be named PROD_fabricname, where fabricname is the name that the fabric has been assigned. The purpose of the PROD configuration is to easily identify the configuration that can be implemented and provide the most generic services. If you want to use other configurations for specific purposes, you can use names such as "BACKUP_A," "RECOVERY_2," and "TEST_18jun02".
