WWN Address in EMC Unity: Best Way to Find

Knowing devices WWN is necessary to define aliases during zone creation in SAN environments on SAN switches, you need to storage FC ports addresses as targets in each zone. So, where you can find device’s FC ports information?

Actually, there is two regular ways:

  • GUI Management Tool
  • CLI Management Tool

Find FC port address is too easy in GUI management tools such as Unisphere and also there is some options to export addresses to some formats like CSV or Excel file.

Here is an example of VNX’s FC ports:

List of VNX FC ports WWN
VNX Unisphere – FC Ports

What About Unity

Same as VNX, Unisphere can show list of FC ports and addresses for storage system:

EMC Unity FC Ports WWN
Unity FC Ports

You can see all FC ports status and information on the above page, but I couldn’t find any export button, so if you have more than one storage array and you need to have all addresses, how you can export addresses as standard formats such as CSV and others?

UEMCLI (command-line management tool) helps you on this regard, run the below command to find FC ports addresses:

uemcli -d 1.1.1.1 -u local/user  /net/port/fc show -filter WWN

Change IP address with your storage IP address and user with your username as well.

The result might be like the below:

Find WWN via UEMCLI for EMC Unity Storage System
Find Addresses via UEMCLI for Storage System

You can copy the addresses as text and paste it to your zoning script or anywhere else.
