    We lost a wwn connection from a new blade server. So the whole blade had to be replaced.

    We then had to manually assign the WWNs via the CLI of the RAID controller.

    Not quite understanding your question, you should look at the following CLI command. This should help you:
    host -[add WWN delete WWN

    In our case we had to change the 2 old blade wwn to the new ones on the new blade.

    Hope this helps.

      Forum will not let me post the host command here. This is the best I can do:
      host -[add WWN
      [-name
      HOSTNAME] | delete WWN | get]

      all of it sits on one line though.

    Are you running Open Fabric Manager? That will clone MACs for replacement blades automatically. Look under the AMM, Blade Tasks, Open Fabric Manager and see if it's enabled and configured.
