Purge command

I've changed an HBA on two servers.

In the fabric manager I see the old WWN and the new WWN.

I've seen that the command used to erase unused WWN is purge fcdomain fcid vsan ID_VSAN.

Is there a contraindication? Is there the danger of disrupt something?

Thank you.

Best regards.

The purge command in Fabric Manager (FM)is to get rid of outdated stuff.

In FM, go to the Server menu and select Purge Down Elements.

That will get rid of the reference to your old WWN. I use it all the time.
