How to retrieve Zone info from Switch into DCFM

I have a very large SAN that is being managed by DCFM.  I need to add over 100 zones to the fabrics and doing this by DCFM GUI would be very time consuming so I entered the zones via the command line and they show up when I do a cfgshow.  I want to now 'import' the zoning table up into the DCFM that is managing the SAN and have them added to the DCFM Zoning Data Base.

I thought there was a way to upload the switch zoning DB to the DCFM, but I can't find it.   Can it be done?

If DFCM does not import the changes automatically on its next refresh, try unmanaging and managing the affected san fabric again via the discovery option.

That should import the latest san fabric zonin configuration from the san fabric again.
