zone mode enhanced - or not ??
Friday night, raining, kids in bed. What else is there to do other than some fcoe testing on INE racks :-)
So, I've been practising my zoning distribution etc, and have found a VERY nasty little gotcha. No idea how it has come about, but do not get fooled by this!
Let's say you have enabled fcoe on an N5K, you have created your fcoe vlan and done your vlan -> vsan mapping - something like this:
fcoe vsan 11
Then, WITHOUT running any other commands, you then run: 'sh runn zone vsan 11' and it shows you this:
N5K5(config-vlan)# sh runn zone vsan 11
!Command: show running-config zone vsan 11

zone mode enhanced vsan 11
Strange - I've not configured anything yet. So then I do a 'sh zone status vsan 11' and get this:
N5K5(config-vlan)# sh zone status vsan 11
VSAN: 11 default-zone: deny distribute: active only Interop: default
mode: basic merge-control: allow
hard-zoning: enabled broadcast: disabled
qos: none broadcast: disabled ronly: unsupported
Full Zoning Database :
DB size: 4 bytes
Zonesets:0 Zones:0 Aliases: 0
Active Zoning Database :

So, the moral of the story - don't trust your 'sh runn zone vsan x' command when t/s whether the zone mode is enhanced or not - I got thoroughly confused.......
This is nx-os system version: 5.1(3)N2(1c), so I don''t know if fixed in later versions.
