name name-string

Specifies the name of the fabric.

switch-ip ip-address

Specify the IP address of the switch joining the fabric.


Specifies the identifier for the fabric.

repeer-to-cluster-node cluster-repeer-node name

Specifies if the action is to replace a dead cluster node by restoring against the existing cluster node.

vlan vlan-id

Specifies the VLAN ID for the fabric.

fabric-network in-band|mgmt

Specifies the fabric network as in-band or management network.

control-network in-band|mgmt

Specifies the control network type as in-band or through the management interface.

tid tid-number

Specifies the transaction identifier.

fabric-advertisement-network inband-mgmt|inband-only

Specify if you want to send fabric advertisement packets over the inband management interface or inband only.

Formatting Options

format fields-to-display

Display output using a specific parameter. Use all to display all possible output.

parsable-delim character

Display output formatted for machine parsing using a specified delimiter.


Display output in ascending order.


Display output in descending order.

show dups

Display duplicate entries in the output.

layout vertical|horizontal

Format the output in a vertical or horizontal layout.

show-interval seconds-interval

Repeat the show command at a specified interval.


Display column headers or not.

limit-output number

Limit the display output to a specific number of entries.


Display the number of entries in the output. This is useful with vRouter show commands.


Display full values in the output instead of scaled approximate values.


Display integer values instead of mapped values


Aggregate output by specific parameters. If sum-by fields are specified, records that have the same value in sum-by fields are combined and displayed as one aggregate record. NOTE: This option is only available for show commands that collect statistics such as connection-stats-show.

Defaults   None.

Access   CLI


Version 1.2

Command introduced.

Version 2.2

The parameters, multicast-ip, and cid, deprecated.

Version 2.2.8

The parameter, network-type, added.

Version 2.3

The parameter, repeer-to-cluster-node, added. 

Version 2.4

The parameter, network-type, changed to fabric-network and control-network. 

Usage   The fabric consists of one or more switches that share an administrative domain. The fabric presents the abstraction of a big logical switch with a single point of management, hiding the complexity of the underlying collection of switch hardware and inter-switch links. Use this command to display information about the fabric.

Examples  To display the fabric, network-1, use the following command:

CLI network-admin@switch > fabric-show name network-1

name:                   network-1

id:                     b0000dd:577a8c70

vlan:                   0

fabric-network:         in-band

control-network:        in-band

tid:                    11
