I think you have got your answer in the other thread.

Still then you can use cmd like nodefind, alishow, nsshow, nscamshow, nsallshow, portshow, portcfgshow,switchshow

for effective zoning, fcping / cfgactvshow

for every cmd usage, pls use help

Pls make the thread correct if you find it.

Hey Hemant,

Thanks for all your help.

I got this result when I use nodefind command on my alias.

    N    6a2800;    2,3;10:00:00:00:c9:38:8c:f8;20:00:00:00:c9:38:8c:f8;
        FC4s: FCP
        NodeSymb: "Emulex LP9002 FV3.93A0 DV6.11cx2"

yes, your host named  neo6f007n1h2, whose wwn is 10:00:00:00:c9:38:8c:f8 is logged in and on port no 40, in switch show you can see this wwn as F port.

in nodefind, if it is not there then it will show you no device found. you can do a nodefind

like : nodefind 10:00:00:00:c9:38:8c:f8

all these you can get from comman reference guide.
