Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You just need one zone for each server.  Each zone should include the 2 HBAs and 4 Storage Array ports.

If the switches are not stackable, meaning, you manage them separately, you will have to create two zones; one for each switch.  Assuming you connected the servers and storage array for redundancy, each zone will include 1 HBA and 2 Storage Array ports.

    Thanks mshen. One more doubt about switches. How many domain ids can create on a brocade 7500 switch and what are the advantages?
