Easy Way To Determine Port Inconsistency Between Fabric A and Fabric B

Good morning,

Was wondering if anyone had a suggestion of an easy way to determine inconsistencies between two fabrics.

 

For example, HOST A is plugged into Slot 1/Port 0 on Fabric A and Slot 1/Port 48 on Fabric B.

 

Have access to the SAN Health output to be used for this exercise.

 

Would like to get the fabrics to cabled in a similar fashion and have hosts on the same ports on both side.

 

Thank you in advance!

Probably not easy but what I did is

1) build a script that goes through all your switches in your fabrics and gathers information of ports, zoning, nameserver, security policies and puts them into a relational database

2) run sql queries against them 

 

If you want to skip 1) and have the BNA you can try and use that database. All needed information should be in there
