ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

vserver fcp wwpn-alias set

Set an alias for a World Wide Port Name of an initiator that might login to the target.

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.


This command creates a new alias for a World Wide Port Name (WWPN). You can create multiple aliases for a WWPN, but you cannot use the same alias for multiple WWPNs.

An alias name is a case-sensitive name that must contain one to 32 characters. Spaces are not allowed.

-a, -alias <text> - Initiator WWPN Alias

Specifies the alias of the WWPN.

-w, -wwpn <FC WWN> - Initiator WWPN

Specifies the WWPN.

[-f, -force <true>] - Force

Allows you to override a WWPN associated with an existing alias with a newly specified WWPN. If you use this parameter without a value, it is set to true, and the command does not prompt you when you override an existing alias.
