how do i look for alias name using the WWN in brocade. Say i have created an alias "CentosNode2Port1" using switch show i get the WWN ,but how to look for the alias name.
alishow (WWN) is not accepting.
this is going to sound rude but don't you think it's time that you went on a Brocade course, bought a book or looked on Brocade's website for their command reference?
90%> of your queries are one-to-three clicks away from a google search - there's only ever me answering your questions (and I'm more of a Cisco MDS guy myself) - I just think you should take control of this work you have to do - get on a training course, tell you managers you need it - buy that book, get digging into Brocade's site. It's not that I don't want to help I just think you're not trying to help yourself.

When you want to search in local switch alone:

Hopefully that might help - oh and you owe me extra details in question 146648
Last line of output of this command will show the aliasnames it is associated with.
It will check the complete connected fabric.
