Making a switch to be a principal switch in a fabric

Hi Guys,

I need to make driector switch to become the principal switch and I found that we need to run fabricprincipal -f 1 . Is this the correct command and can it be done online meaning without interrupting the I/Os going thru the switches in the fabric?

Regards,

Mahendran

Hi Mahendran

I would run this command at low I/O times as from my understanding it forces a fabric rebuild.

Thanks ESP... We manage to make the director switch principle by using fabricprincipal -f 1 and we did this during low I/O window.
