Remove old switch from fabric?

In the output of "fabricshow" I see a couple of old switches which were used for migrating FCP services, but are long gone.

 

This should be obvious but I can't find any way to remove them from the fabric. It doesn't hurt but would be nice to clean things up.

 

The only comments I've found by searching around are from people who are about to remove a switch, but in my case they've been gone for over a year.

Here's the fabricshow output with names and addresses lightly obfuscated. In this example switch ID 1 is the one I'd like to get rid of.

 

XXX_D7:admin> fabricshow
Switch ID   Worldwide Name           Enet IP Addr    FC IP Addr      Name
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
  1: fffc01 50:00:51:ea:XX:XX:0f:1c 0.0.0.0         0.0.0.0         "fcr_xd_1_1"
  7: fffc07 10:00:00:05:XX:XX:a3:00 172.30.a.b   0.0.0.0        >"XXX_D7"

The Fabric has 7 switches

Re: Remove old switch from fabric?

DID1 is a translate domain, so most likely an LSAN zone exists to im/export device from another fabric.

lsnazoneshow -s should give you a list of LSAN zones in existence.

 

Although not my area of expertise i'll do my best to help otherwise you need to wait for members with more FCR knowledge.
