Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Update – since this is an iSeries, go here: Locating the WWPN for an IBM eServer iSeries host.

    I'd guess your System i is a 9117-MMB, but I'm not sure at all about the SAN. Can you provide a make/model or anything useful? (IBM DS8000 series?) Tom

    Whats the command in iSeries? I believe the mentioned CMD is from UNIX or something..?

    Whats the command in iSeries? AFAIK, there is no "command in iSeries". This hardware is managed well below the OS level. The OS generally doesn't even know it exists. However, you might get access by going in through Service Tools to get at some of the hardware. See if the Locating the WWPN for IBM Power Systems™ hosts running IBM i procedure gets you there. If it doesn't, then you're possibly going to have to ask EMC. Tom

    Tom, the below pasted link is not Working..?

    The link I referenced says: You can find the 16-digit worldwide port name (WWPN) for an iSeries host system in the field for port worldwide name by displaying the detail on the 2766, 2787 or 5760 IOA Logical Hardware Resource information in the Hardware Service Manager in SST/DST. You can also find the WWPN by appending the number 1000 to the beginning of the 12-digit IEEE address found on the tailstock label of the fibre-channel input/output adapter (IOA). You can locate the WWPN for an iSeries host by performing the following steps: On the iSeries Main Menu panel, type strsst. On the Start Service Tools (STRSST) Sign On panel, type your service tools user ID and password. On the System Service Tools (SST) panel, type 1 to select Start a service tool. On the Start a Service Tool panel, type 7 to select Hardware service manager. On the Hardware Service Manager panel, type 1 to select Packaging hardware resources (systems, frames, cards,...). On the Packaging Hardware Resources panel, type 9 to select the System Expansion unit. On the Packaging Hardware Resources panel, type 8 to select Storage IOA. On the Logical Resources Associated with a Packaging Resource panel, type 5 to select Storage IOA. On the Auxiliary Storage Hardware Resource Detail panel, locate the field name for the worldwide port name. The number in the right column is the WWPN. Note: If you have exchanged a 2766 fibre-channel IOA in the iSeries host, you must update the WWPN of the new 2766, 2787 or 5760 IOA. And yes, my earlier posting was for a AIX system, oops, wrong hat on at the that moment.

    the below pasted link is not Working..? Both links -- from Rbogar and from me -- work for me. It can be tricky grabbing the link from the 'Answer' box, but the content on both pages is effectively the same. I.e., this must be done through Service Tools to get at the Hardware Resources. Tom

    Yes..Both the links working fine...it might be some typo error.. I've gone through the link...But when the option says System Expansion Unit..i really have 10 System Expansion Units in my system and Each expansion unit has 2 to 4 STORAGE IOAs....bit tough, to see only HBA cards WWPN no..when i go through them..i see all the Storage IOAs..all has WWPN nos..are all Fiber cards have WWPN no....bit confused..?

    ..are all Fiber cards have WWPN no…. AFAIK, yes. Each should have a globally unique identifier. This can be thought of like a MAC address on a network adapter. Tom

    I was ended up in finding the HBAs which only connected to SAN..I see many fiber cards..How to find out which HBAs are connected to SAN...? and does it mean that..Fiber Card = HBA?

    Did you get it with DS6000 or EMC Product?
