Exporting Fibre Channel device identifications to a CSV file

You can export existing Fibre Channel device identifications to a CSV file from the OnCommand Insight device resolution feature. You might want to export a device identification so that you can modify it and then import it back into Insight where it is then used to identify devices that are similar to those originally matching the exported identification.

About this task
