Adding Zoning to Brocade Silkworm Switch through CLI

product-300-right-gallery-banner[1]As the Brocades GUI ( written in Java ) is bad , it’s easier to zone stuff through commands line聽

To Add the Zoning

switchshow -> Lists the ports and the HBA WWN's so you can match them up
Also lists the zoning CFG Name
 
cfgshow -> Lists the current Alias and Config
 
alicreate "VMSERVER02_VMHBA4", "00:00:00:00:00:00:fb:a8"
 
zonecreate "CML_VMSERVER02_VMHBA4", "VMSERVER02_VMHBA4"
 
zoneadd "CML_VMSERVER02_VMHBA4", "ALIASOFSANCONTROLLER1"
zoneadd "CML_VMSERVER02_VMHBA4", "ALIASOFSANCONTROLLER2"
 
 
cfgadd "CML_ZONE_CFG","CML_VMSERVER02_VMHBA4"
 
cfgsave
 
cfgenable CML_ZONE_CFG

 

 

To Remove the Alias and Zones

alidelete "VMSERVER02_VMHBA4"
 
zonedelete "CML_VMSERVER02_VMHBA4"
 
cfgremove "CML_ZONE_CFG","CML_VMSERVER02_VMHBA4"
 
cfgsave
 
cfgenable CML_ZONE_CFG
