To assign a name to a port

 

Brocade(config)# interface ethernet 2
Brocade(config-if-e1000-2)# port-name portvine


Syntax: port-name <text>


The <text> parameter is an alphanumeric string. The name can be up to 64 characters long. The
name can contain blanks. You do not need to use quotation marks around the string, even when it
contains blanks.
