Like the subject states, I want to know if it is possible to find out the WWN of a FCoE device connected to the swich. Is this possible using commands from the switch?

yes it is possible. That is what the name service is for.
What kind of switch are we talking about - model/name - and FOS/NOS version, please?
And is local devices or remote devices?
For example, for a 8000 with FCOE devices, this works for a 8000
Or if we are in cmsh mode on a 8000
Switch-cmsh# fos switchshow

Hi and thanks for oyur response,
Yes, the switch I am using is the Brocade 8000.
I have tried the commands you told me, and it doesn't seem like the device is registering in the name server. The led of the port that it is plugged into is green though, and I have made sure the vlan the port is configured to is on "fcf forward".
I ran the "show interface" command in cmsh mode, and the port I am connected to says that the TenGigabitEthernet port is up and the line protocol is up (connected).
I have no clue as to why the connected device won't register in the name server.
Thanks for your help.

if the FCOE port was logged into the name server, you would have seen
9 030900 -- 10G Online FCoE VF-Port 1 VN-Port(s)
And you could have used
fcoe --loginshow 9
to look at the logged in port. To which port is the device connected? Please provide output from
And the attached the output from
