Feel stupid for asking as I have done a lot of SAN fabric design and implementation for smbs
Typically, I use the gui and connect devices and create the aliases as they are connected in. I then create zones etc. Brocade gui is so slow it can take some time.
I have therefore created the aliases in advance by checking the impending hardware for its wwpn, creating the aliases and then zoning together, i.e. I used the alicreate command
When I actually connect the live kit that marries up with my pre-created aliases, will they light up and start working or not? (Assume I have applied the zone config etc)
