Hello EE,
I have a Brocade 300 with port 3 going to a HP Server
I want to swing this cable to a new HP Server so on the Brocade can be used to talk to the tape drive from the new server.
I admit some lack of expertise, but assume the port is good and I only need to:
1. Add alias for the new server.
2. Rename zone if desired, but add member and remove old server member (see attached)

Am I missing anything?

You do not need to move the cable as you have all fiber channel connections.  What you need to do is remove the server you don't want to access the tape drive from the zone and add the other server.  That is all you need to do.

But rather than co figuring a port I could unplug the fiber cable from the old server and connect it to the new server (or do I need to do something more on the port?)

Than add alias for the new server and add it to the zone after removing the old server?
