Hello,

We defined device-alias name for all pwwn on all SAN directors using

config t

device-alias database

device-alias name xxxxxxxxxxxx

device....

device....

device-alias commit

exit

checking with

show device-alias database

--> all is "aliased" ok!

Now looking in Fabric Manager not all Device Alias have an alias and still show the Port WWN

device-alias missing.png

How can I rescan/repoll/update the Fabric Manager database for correct device-alias from the SAN directors?

Rgds,

Ivy

- FM is java based application uses snmp protocol to poll the switches.

you might be seeing some lag causing discrepency in actual cli and FM GUI.

try removing the fabric and re-discovering the fabric on FM control panel. using "fabrics" tab

FM has long been restarted.

Even re-installed.

Some pwwn alias are missing...

Hi Ivy,


This looks like bug ID
CSCtu03947 Device-alias add/delete doesn't update client cache.
It is fixed in 5.2(2a) to be released next year.

The workaround is to delete the fabric and re-discover it.

Example:
Log into Fabric Manager.  The first window is the Control Panel.
(Another way to get to the FM Control Panel is File > Open)
Select the Fabrics Tab.
Select the Fabric, then the Remove or Delete button.
Then the Discover button to re-discover the fabric.

Does this work for you?

Regards,
David
