The process for clearing a zone completely is:
Wipes out zoning san wide though.

One switch has an isl via two mpx110 gateways to another two switches. I am getting an E-Port segmented,(zone conflict) message.
I have shutdown the uplink ports from the upstream switch and done a switchdisable, cfgdisable, cfgclear, cfgsave. Rebooted the two mpx110, but I still have a segmented fabric.
Am I doing something wrong?

Also remember FCIP requires ports 3226, and 3225 available theses are required for Class 2, 3 and Class F communication

If it shows "No Access", then this is likely the issue. With the newer firmwares, Brocade introduced this command to allow a switch to be configured to disable device communication when there is no zoning on the switch. When set to "No Access", the switch creates a hidden zoning config with a single empty zone in it, which effectively blocks devices from talking. It has the unfortunate side effect of preventing zone merges sometimes as well.
If this is the case on your switch, you can correct this by doing the following:
Then try merging the switches again.

Thanks very much, defzone no access was the issue.
I can't seem to assign points for some reason.
You'd have all points if I could.
Once again, many thanks.

I have just gone through this this morning. This is what I did to resolve the problem.
Exported the current alias and zone information.
No effective configuration found.
The Clear All action will clear all Aliases, Zones, FA Zones
and configurations in the Defined configuration.
cfgSave may be run to close the transaction or cfgTransAbort
may be run to cancel the transaction.
Do you really want to clear all configurations? (yes, y, no, n): [no] yes
You are about to save the Defined zoning configuration. This
action will only save the changes on Defined configuration.
Any changes made on the Effective configuration will not
take effect until it is re-enabled.
Do you want to save Defined zoning configuration only? (yes, y, no, n): [no] yes
Updating flash ...
Committing configuration ... done.
Change the zone id to 5, 6 or whatever from 1
It all worked fine - and the FCIP gateways allowed the SAN switches to merge successfully. After that I recreated the zones required for site 2.
Hope it helps

just wanted to know the steps you provided are for config where there are no zones and when a default zone is created.
What if we have existing zones in the environment and we face this issue.
We have FCIP configured between Brocade DCX and 7500 Extension switch. We recently had a power outage and since then the 7500 is throwing error regarding the VE port being segmented. I checked the output of command 'defzone --show' which turns out to be as below since we have existing zones.
B7500-RT:maintadmin> defzone --show
Default Zone Access Mode
committed - All Access
transaction - No Transaction
Also the port is in online status but segmented as below. Kindly advise if any solution for the same since this is prod environment, we need this fixed as HUR is configured using these ports.
16 16 021000 -- -- Online VE VE-Port segmented,(zone conflict)
