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?

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 126.96.36.199 -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:
You can copy the addresses as text and paste it to your zoning script or anywhere else.
