Modify the domain ID, if required. The default domain ID is 1.
• If the switch is not powered on until after it is connected to the fabric and the default domain
ID is already in use, the domain ID for the new switch is automatically reset to a unique value.
• If the switch is connected to the fabric after it has been powered on and the default domain
ID is already in use, the fabric segments. To find the domain IDs that are currently in use, run
the fabricshow command on another switch in the fabric, and then do the following:
Disable the switch by entering the switchdisable command.
Enter the configure command.
The command prompts appear sequentially.
Enter a new value or press Enter to accept each default value.
Enter y after the Fabric param prompt:
Fabric param (yes, y, no, n): [no] y
Enter a unique domain ID, such as the domain ID used by the previous switch, if it is still
Domain: (1 ..239)  3
Complete the remaining prompts or press Ctrl+D to accept the remaining settings without
completing all the prompts.
Re-enable the switch by entering the switchenable command.
Setting the switch date and time
The 8-Gb SAN Switch maintains the current date and time inside a battery-backed RTC circuit. Switch
operation does not depend on the date and time. An 8-Gb SAN Switch with an incorrect date and
time value still functions properly. However, it is important that your switch shows the accurate date
and time, because these are used for logging, error detection, and troubleshooting.
Log in to the switch using the default password, (password).
Enter the date command:
The values represent the following:
• mm is the month; valid values are 01 through 12.
• dd is the date; valid values are 01 through 31.
• HH is the hour; valid values are 00 through 23.
• MM is minutes; valid values are 00 through 59.
• yy is the year; valid values are 00 through 99. (Values greater than 69 are interpreted as
1970 through 1999, and values less than 70 are interpreted as 2000-2069.)
