A simple script that Collect hostname and IPAddress of all switches in a given fabric and adds it to /etc/hosts file. This enables to local name resolution for machines without DNS or installations were DNS is not used. I will be adding a second part to this script. A menu based connection utility. Mainly a browser that will display all fabrics and its switches. For those of us that prefer command line rather than a java GUI to do our switch administration.
