Abort Changes made to SAN Switch

Abort changes made to a SAN Switch

Everyone will tend to make mistake some or other day at work. In case of SAN Administration, people like me; do more mistakes than rest. So, I should know how to fix it with out glitches in the production. One day, I was trying to create some new alias, zones etc… on Brocade SAN switch and added them to the configuration. Later, I realised that I shouldn’t have done those changes. What to do now? Should I remove aliases and zones one by one? No… I don’t have patience to do that, even though I made a mistake. So, some genius guy who works with Brocade has added commands to help people like us 😦
cfgtransshow and cfgtransabort:

cfgtransshow will show the transactions and can be cleaned using the cfgtransabort.
So, go ahead and explore yourself! It will come in handy when you want to cover from the SAN zoning mistakes…
Take care!

How to check your Brocade SAN Switch is ready to use for 8 GBps?

Its time to say bye to 1-2-4 GBps and say hi to 8 GBps. So how do you know whether your SAN switch is ready to plugin 8 GBps SFP’s?

Here is the command

slotshow -m

Above command show the info about the blades connected to the slots, no. of ports in each blade and the port speed. “FC8” means 8 GBps “FC4” means 4 GBps supported by the switch blades. Remember, if you have 1 GBps / GBICs then we cant use them with 8 GBps supported Blades.
