Fabric OS Commands : fabricName

fabricName
Configures the fabric name parameter.
Synopsis
fabricname --set fabric_name
fabricname --clear
fabricname --show
fabricname --help
Description
Use this command to configure a name for the fabric.
With Virtual Fabrics it is not uncommon to have multiple fabrics in a single chassis. These logical fabrics are identified by their Fabric ID. With the fabricName command, you can address a fabric by name. This command provides an option for addressing fabrics by name. However, the fabric name does not replace the FID; the functionality of the FID is unaffected by the fabric name.
Notes
The execution of this command is subject to Virtual Fabric or Admin Domain restrictions that may be in place. Refer to Chapter 1, "Using Fabric OS Commands" and Appendix A, "Command Availability" for details.
Fabric name support requires Fabric OS v7.0.0 firmware and will be lost on downgrade.
