IBM Spectrum Control: Spark joy with this Pro Tip for sorting switches

By EUGENE O'CONNOR posted Fri October 23, 2020 09:39 AM

  
IBM® Spectrum Control lists your storage network resources in easy-to-customize lists. You can tailor how you want your resources to appear by using filters, sorting by the properties of a switch, and by showing, hiding, and reordering properties. For all the details, search our Knowledge Center.

You can also sort switches so that physical switches and their virtual or logical switches are grouped together. That is, a physical switch appears first, followed immediately by its virtual switches. Here's how:

  1. Click Network > Switches.
  2. Show the Virtual and IP Address columns.
  3. Click the Virtual column to sort it in ascending alphabetical order.
  4. Click the IP Address column.
Here's a short video of how to do it:
