run nodefind against a alias, wwn to get output similar like below

 

nodefind xyz
Remote:
    Type Pid    COS     PortName                NodeName
    N    140f00;    2,3;10:00:00:00:c9:60:b5:ac;20:00:00:00:c9:60:b5:ac;
        FC4s: IPFC FCP
        PortSymb: [34] "Emulex PPN-10:00:00:00:C9:60:B5:AC"
        NodeSymb: [45] "Emulex FC2243 FV2.10A7  DV5-2.00A12 IDCSRV011"
        Fabric Port Name: 20:0f:00:05:1e:05:d3:7c
        Permanent Port Name: 10:00:00:00:c9:60:b5:ac
        Device type: Physical Initiator
        Port Index: 15
        Share Area: No
        Device Shared in Other AD: No
        Redirect: No
    Aliases: yxz

The PID bit 140f00 tells you the domain it is connected to in hex, so 14 is domain 20.

 Remote tells the device is not connected to this switch, so you need to continue your search

 

fabric show will show switchname and domain

fabricshow
Switch ID   Worldwide Name           Enet IP Addr    FC IP Addr      Name
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 20: fffc14 10:00:00:05:1e:05:d3:7c 172.dd.x.yyy    0.0.0.0        >"sansw20"
 40: fffc28 10:00:00:05:1e:05:d9:75 172.dd.x.yyy   0.0.0.0         "sansw40"

So DID 20 translate to switchname sansw20 with an ip address as bonus.

 

Then you know which switch to go to
