CLI command to determine EX-Port port WWNs?

Hi all,

I have a Brocade 48k (FOS 5.3.1b) functioning as a routing switch between a Brocade fabric and a McData fabric.  Unfortunately I can't work out the port-to-port connectivity between the router switch and the McData fabric (there are multiple connections between the switches).

Is there a command I can run at the CLI to determine the port WWN of the McData port connected to an EX-port?  All I can find is the WWN of the McData switch.

Alternatively, is there a command I can run to tell me the port WWN the router switch is using to log into the McData?  I can see a port WWN in the each of the E-ports on the McData, but I can't work out which port on the Brocade is presenting which WWN forward.

Thanks,

Bryan

With the command "nsshow" you can list all Link and Device in the fabric.

The only connections to the switch are EX ports (4 to Brocade, 8 to McData) so the name server is empty.

The nsshow -t output:

"There is no entry in the Local Name Server"
