How to find an missing port information from a DCX director

I have a small issue for troubleshoot. Here it goes,

There's a Host with 2 HBA connecting to redundant Fabrics DCX.

Out of the 2 HBAs, HBA1 is Offline . I don't have any previous records referring to which port it was connected earlier.

Now, is there a possibility to find to which Port it was connected in that Switch from remote ?

quick help required!.

Hmm, no previous record makes it kind of hard to determine.

So my first question would be, are those redundant fabric's mirrored to each other.

ie

server 1 hba 1 in fabric1 switch 1 port 1

server 1 hba 2 in fabric 2 switch 1 port 1

server 2 hba 1 in fabric1 switch 1 port 2

server 2 hba 2 in fabric 2 switch 1 port 2

server 3 hba 1 in fabric1 switch 1 port 3

server 3 hba 2 in fabric 2 switch 1 port 3

If so I would try the same port on the redundant fabric.

If you have your hosts randomly connected to the switches, A trip (or hand eyes request) to the DC would be faster

Hi,

if you have an supportsave from where the host was connected, you can find the nsshow command output.

If you have FOS Version 6.3 or later you will find the Information in the SSHOW_Service.
