Newline character after alias in brocade switch configuration

Hi,

I am running the following Fabric OS version:

Kernel: 2.6.14.2  

Fabric OS:  v6.3.0c

Made on:Fri Dec 18 06:03:21 2009
Flash:  Sun Feb 28 15:33:20 2010

BootProm:   1.0.9

I am writing some Perl scripts to automate some zoning tasks.

When I do an 'aliShow', some of the aliases put the alias name and wwn on seperate lines, and some of them have the alias and wwn on the same line.

eg. (server 3 below is on the same line)

alias: server1

                10:00:00:00:c9:57:09:9f

alias: server2

                10:00:00:00:c9:71:4c:94

alias: server3  10:00:00:00:c9:95:e8:7f

alias: server4

                10:00:00:00:c9:79:e2:ee

alias: server5

                10:00:00:00:c9:79:e2:8f

Any idea why this happens or how I can force the wwn to always be on a seperate line?

Thanks in advance

Re: Newline character after alias in brocade switch configuration

Hi,

I have created those very same alias in my switch and they all are printed in the same line.

I recommend you to choose alias names with one extra character so that all the alias, without exception, are printed with the name and the WWN in separate lines.

rgds,
