FCX Interface Description

Hi Guys,

I'm missing something simple.  How do I add a description to an interface on the FCX switch?

I'm running FCX648S on 07.4.00aT7f1.

config t

interface eth 1/1/15

?

There doesn't seems to be a Description or Name option.

Thanks

Re: FCX Interface Description

To assign a name to a port.

Brocade(config)# interface ethernet 2

Brocade(config-if-e1000-2)# port-name Marsha

Syntax: port-name <text>

The <text> parameter is an alphanumeric string. The name can be up to 64 characters long. The

name can contain blanks. You do not need to use quotation marks around the string, even when it

contains blanks.
