config backup missing details?

Hey there,

I found out that port names (not aliases used in zoning) are not backed up when using cfgupload.

In fact port names neither display using cfgshow or configshow -all.

Am I missing an important part of the config in my backups?

Re: config backup missing details?

I don't know whether this will help, but I'm observing the same behaviour on our switches.

For us;

In FOS6.3.1a portnames are included in the configupload.

In FOS6.4.1b portnames are excluded in the configupload.

Again for us it doesn't matter which platform we use and/or have VF enabled or not.

I think I read something about it a while back, but am unable to find the source.
