Brocade VDX: Three Important Commands For Verifying The Fabric

You got three good commands for verifying the fabric.  Here they are in action:

Notice the link interfaces in the command below.
VDX1# show fabric trunk

Rbridge-id: 1

Trunk    Src      Source         Nbr        Nbr
Group   Index   Interface       Index   Interface               Nbr-WWN
 1      64      Te 1/0/1        64      Te 2/0/1        10:00:C4:F5:7C:58:F2:3C
 1      65      Te 1/0/2        65      Te 2/0/2        10:00:C4:F5:7C:58:F2:3C
 1      66      Te 1/0/3        66      Te 2/0/3        10:00:C4:F5:7C:58:F2:3C
 1      67      Te 1/0/4        67      Te 2/0/4        10:00:C4:F5:7C:58:F2:3C

Notice the bandwidth and the primary interface of the ISL link.
VDX1# show fabric isl

Rbridge-id: 1   #ISLs: 1

 Src       Src           Nbr       Nbr
Index   Interface       Index   Interface               Nbr-WWN           BW   Trunk  Nbr-Name
64      Te 1/0/1         64     Te 2/0/1        10:00:C4:F5:7C:58:F2:3C   40G   Yes   "VDX2"

Notice the mode we are operating in, along with the VDX MACs, IPs, and status.
VDX1# sh vcs
