nport zoning using CLI

Hello all,

I am interested in zoning an n-port using the CLI.  Would I use the alicreate as I would do normally if I were zoning an physical HBA?  What is the command that would display the PWWNs served up via. NPIV?

I found several articles that detail the GUI procedure creating an alias as an "other" port, but none for the CLI.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

WS

Re: nport zoning using CLI

Thank you Alexy.  Once I have the port numbers I assume I can alias and zone as normal?

Re: nport zoning using CLI

yes, sure. they are just WWNs seen by others like anything else. you alias them and then zone them.
