Viewing switches consolidation issues

The reported data for switches is derived from the Inventory data mart. For all switches, there is a row for each connector that reports on them, as well as the Primary Connector from which each switch is taken.

  2. From the navigation pane on the left, clickTroubleshooting.
  3. In the Chassis Consolidation section, click SAN Switches.
  4. Optionally, filter data in this view by typing a portion of the text and clicking Filter. To clear the filter, clear the Filter box and click Filter. You can filter by switch name, switch IP, vendor model, or OnCommand Insight object ID.
