SAN Switch cheat sheet


M-Series
M-Series (Mcdata) switches uses both web and CLI, the table below displays some but not all the CLI commands.
commadelimToggle comma-demlimited display mode
configconfigure settings
loginlogin into CLI with different access rights
maintmaintenance settings
perfPerformance statistics

showdisplay attributes
featuresconfigure feature settings
ipconfigure IP settings
logoutlogout of the CLI
portconfigure port data
securityconfigure security settings
snmpconfigure snmp
switchconfigure switch data
systemconfigure system data
zoningconfgiure zoning settings
There are several commands that allow you to navigate through the switch "..", "ctrl-U" and "root" .
M-Series (Mcdata) zoning commands are detailed in the below table
showactiveshow actively running zoneSet
clearzoneclear WWN's in a zone
deletezoneremove zone from running config

addzoneadd a new zone to the working area
addwwnmemadd a WWN to a zone
showpendingshow pending zones
renamezonerename a zone
deletewwndelete a WWN from a zone
renamezonesetrename a zone set
Zoning limits
  • 64 zone sets (max)
  • 2000 zones (max)
  • 1024 zones per zone set (max)
  • deafult should all ways be disabled (causes all port to see each other creating ghosts in a FA's login table)

MDS-series creating a zone
create a zone and place it in the vsan# zone name testzone1 vsan 4
add a member (port wwn example)# member pwwn 10:00:00:00:c9:21:40:b8 (port on the host)
add a member (fabric port wwn example)# member fwwn 10:01:10:01:10:ab:cd:ef (port on the switch)
add a member (FCID example - hard zoning)# member fcid 0x7f0000 (24 bit address)
add a member (FC alias example)# member fcalias payroll
MDS-series common commands
display logged in WWN, display vsan information# show flogi database
display the specific vsan logins# show fcns database vsan 4
activatng a zoneset# zoneset activate name zone1 vsan 4
delete a zoneset# clear zone dataabse vsan 4
configure the default zone# zone default-zone permit vsan 4
display zones and zonsets# show zoneset active
# show zoneset
# show zoneset active vsan 4
copy active zone set to the full zone set# zone copy active-zoneset full-zoneset vsan 4
distribute the full zoning database to others switches# zoneset distribute full vsan 4
