IF I understand correctly,  after we connect server's HBA port to san switch, and if we do "switchshow"  on SAN switch, it suppose to show the WWPN number of the server right?

"switchshow" shows all switch ports and the WWPNs of the adapters connected to these ports, including state (Online/Offline/No Module), protocol (fabric/AL/trunk), speed and media (GBIC) type.

At the top of the report it shows various switch details including the WWN of the switch itself.

Far more info is on the Help page, issue "help switchshow".

Thank you very much. When you do zoning, would you recommend hard zoning or soft zoning?

If you don't have very elevated security requirements go with soft zoning provided by your switches.

It doesn't require any additional hardware feature and is easy to configure (at least with switches like your Brocade/IBM model).
