Create a new fcalias called


emcsaninfo_fcalias under vsan 2

sanswitch1(config-fcalias)#
member
pwwnxx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

Configures alias members based


on the specified port WWN type
and
value(pWWNxx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:
xx)

sanswitch1(config-fcalias)# exit

Existing from fc alias


configuration(Repeat 1 to 4 for
creating additional fc alias)

sanswitch1(config)# zone name


emcsaninfo_zonevsan 2

creating zone called


emcsaninfo_zone under vsan 2

nfig-zone)# member fcalias
emcsaninfo_fcalias1

addingfcaliasemcsaninfo_fcalias
as a member of zone
emcsaninfo_zone(add your host fc
alias as well as storage alias into
the same zone. Here I assume
fcalias is the hostalias and
fcalias1 as storage alias)
