Zoning a Brocade switch via command line

I recently found that I will need to create several zones on a brocade FC switch. Normally I use the Java GUI as this is easy and simple to visualize the changes, but with approximately 120 zones to create, the GUI is out of the question.

A little bit of searching and I found some great blogs discussing just this – creating FC zones from command line.

One thing to note is that many of the commands (such as alicreate) can support multiple members. This means you can have multiple WWNs added to a single alias via a single command. To see which commands support multiple members, use the help command – ex: help alicreate
