I'm a total newbie at SYMCLI and would really appreciate some help if possible.
I have a server which was masked to our vmax and has since been decomissioned, the question I have, is even though we have deleted the port, inititator and storage groups, I can still it's Host alias in SMC with the masking between it's wwns and the FA ports.
Using symcli is there any way to manage/interrogate or even delete this Host Alias safely? an example of the command I managed to find and run is below.
C:\>symmask -sid 95 list logins | find /i "c949"
10000000c949a3bc Fibre hostnamexxx hba1_0 0a0021 No Yes
10000000c949a409 Fibre hostnamexxx hba2_0 0b0042 No Yes
The reason I could find out is because I could see it's wwns listed in SMC and could use the common "c949" reference to latch on to it.
Even a little bit of guidance as to which sym command I need to run would be really appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
sure, you can delete these entries:
symaccess -sid 123 -wwn 500143800727577a -dirport 8g:0 remove -login
Remove 500143800727577a from Login history table of symmetrix 0000000000123 (y/
dynamox, thanks for the reply, it gives me some info on what I need, but not all of it.
What I really need is a command to query the host alias, let's say if I didn't have SMC (since I yanked the wwns from it) how would I go about getting the same info?
Also once I delete both the wwn to port masks will the host alias be deleted or is there another command I need to run to accomplish that?
Sorry to be a pain....
Dynamox no worries you answered the question perfectly the first time. I'm the thick one
Once I deleted both the sym mask logins (for both wwns) the host alias disappeared and it looks perfect now.
Thanks again for taking the time.
