Applies to

  • OnCommand Insight (OCI)
  • Cloud Insights (CI)
  • Brocade Switch

Answer

  • The purpose of this field is to allow you to give a fabric a more descriptive name than the WWN of the fabric. 
  • WWN is the default name for a fabric within OCI / CI. 
  • If the Brocade switch is running FOS 7.0.0 or higher, we recommend you actually name your fabrics on the Brocade device, using Brocade CLI command fabricname
