I need to add a vsan to a Cisco 9120 fc switch. I need assistance with making sure it is done correctly, because there is an existing vsan in place. Is it as simple as creating a new vsan and then creating the alias's in the vsan for the new hosts/storage?

I am most concerned with affecting the existing vsan. I want to me 100% sure that what I add will not affect it.

- Create a new VSAN
 - Assign physical switch ports to the VSAN
 - Create aliases etc
 - Create zones
 - Add zones to config
 - Activate config

And there is ZERO risk of affecting the existing VSAN configuration and data flow? Its a production environment if I bring it down that would be very very bad.

Zero risk - as long as don't do anything silly..  :-)

Be careful to check which ports you are adding to the new VSAN so that you don't accidentally pull a production server our of the production VSAN.
