Disabling a zone configuration

Disabling the currently enabled configuration returns the fabric to no-zoning mode. All devices can then access one another or not at all, depending on the default zone access mode setting.

For fabrics with many devices, Brocade recommends setting the default zone access mode to No Access before disabling a zone configuration to avoid RSCN storms.
  1. In privileged EXEC mode, enter the configure terminal command to enter global configuration mode.
  2. Enter the no zoning enabled-configuration cfg-name command.

    In addition to disabling the currently enabled configuration, this command also saves any changes made to the zoning database in volatile memory to nonvolatile memory. The saved configuration is persistent.

    Example of disabling a zone configuration:

    switch# configure terminal
    Entering configuration mode terminal
    switch(config)# no zoning enabled-configuration cfg-name
