When building a Vblock720 I use the following information to assist in Zoning and Masking of UCS Blades.
In order to gather the wwn’s of all the VMAX front-end director ports the following command is quite useful. (See screenshot below)
symcfg -sid XXX list -fa all
I also find the following command very helpful:
symcfg -sid XXX list -fa all -port
This will give you the list of all Front-End adapters on the VMAX displaying both online and connection status details. From the screenshot below you can see that FA-5E P0 and P1 are both online and P0 is connected (in our case it is connected to an Cisco MDS 9513 Multilayer Director). You can also see that while both FA-7H ports are online neither are connected to a port on the MDS. FA-7G both ports are online and both are connected to ports on MDS.
In order to view the online status of all the Back-end director ports:
symcfg -sid XXX list -da all
From the output of this command you can also view the number of hyper volumes per port and how they are distributed accross the backend.
If you wish to display the online status of both Front-end and Backend ports through a single command:
symcfg -sid XXX list -dir all
View Port status and connection status of RDF Ports:
symcfg list -RA ALL -PORT
List logins shows hosts logged into the port specified:
symaccess -sid XXX -dirport 1E:0 list logins
