We have some brocade fiber channel switchs including the one inside 3 bladecenters H. We have also several zonnings configured but we dont have a tool to show or print all connections.

Is there any free or commercial tool to get what we want?

    Hi again,

    I fear there isn't much!

    OK, IBM Director can do a bit (didn't we talk about this one recently?).

    and there is the IBM Tivoil Storage Productivity Center

    - particularly the "... for Fabric" part.

    But I guess this latter one will be really expensive (I don't have exact info, however).

    I, personally, use MS Visio to sketch my SAN ...

    ummm.. bad news for me when I hear you say "you use MS  visio for this" :-)

    The problem is we're always changing alias, zonnings, adding/removing lpars, and we never know in which switch we have to create the new zonning.   :-(

    I'll take a look at your URLs.... be out for a couple of hours..see ya!
