I am looking for information relating to a series of tests which could be performed after some new SAN Fabric switches have been installed in order to show that they are working . . . my customer is asking for some basic tests which could be performed, and rather than reinvent the wheel, I was wondering whether anyody had anyhting which they could share.
Has anyody got any previously used test plans?

the question is, what do you want to test
or better what does the customer want to get answered with a test!
and no i have not used test plans, SAN works or it does not work that simple it is :)
but, there are some basic tests you can run when implementing ISL.
first you can use the D port config to run diag test on ISL ports connected to each other.
or the more demanding test that can be run in a life enviroment, but with caution
with the command spinfab you can test if the ISL are working correct
*spinFab - Runs functional test of interswitch link (ISL)
cabling and trunk group operation.
i would use this command only if the fabrics arent in production yet.
never the less ask your customer what answers he is looking for
