FabricManager device name import

When I discover a switch in FabricManager (v5.0.0), all the initiators show up as unknown. When I  use the "device name import wizard", it picks up the names of the targets (storage ports), but not the servers. I've used both the 'zone alias import' and the 'CSV file import.' The results show that 74 names were imported, but I still see unknown listed for all the connected servers.

I use WWN zoning, with 1 server and 1 storage port per zone.

I have over 2000 ports on 40 switches. I really don't want to enter all the names manually. Is there another way to do it, maybe with command line?

Re: FabricManager device name import

I found the solution for this. For the target devices (array ports), the WWN and PWWN are the same. I use PWWN for my aliases. I changed the CSV file to reflect the WWN, and the names imported properly.
