If you have recently installed Windows 10 on your computer, you might be wondering how to get the WWN number. The WWN number is a specific code that is assigned to your computer by Microsoft. This code is required for some devices and software to work properly. Luckily, it’s easy to find your WWN number in Windows 10. In this blog post, we will show you how to get the WWN number in Windows 10.
What is WWN Number?
The WWN number, also known as the World Wide Name, is a unique identifier assigned to each device that connects to a Fibre Channel network. The WWN is used to identify devices in storage area networks (SANs), and is similar to a MAC address.
To get the WWN number in Windows, open the Device Manager and look for the Fibre Channel adapter under the “Storage Controllers” section. The WWN number will be listed next to the “Node Address” field.
How to Get WWN Number in Windows?
If you need to get your WWN number in Windows, there are a few different ways that you can do it. The first way is to use the “wmic” command. To do this, open up the Command Prompt and type in “wmic path win32_portablebatterylocation get data”. This should return your WWN number.
Another way to get your WWN number is to use the “get-initiatorport” cmdlet. To do this, open up PowerShell and type in “get-initiatorport”. This should return your WWN number.
If you have access to the registry, you can also find your WWN number there. To do this, go to Start > Run and type in “regedit”. Then navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Ole. Finally, look for the “InitiatorPort” key and double-click on it. Your WWN number will be listed under the “Data” value.
What to do With Your WWN Number?
Your WWN number is a unique identifier that allows your computer to be recognized by other devices on a storage network. There are a few different ways that you can use your WWN number.
One way to use your WWN number is to connect to storage devices that support the Fibre Channel protocol. In order to connect to a Fibre Channel storage device, you will need to provide your WWN number to the storage administrator.
Another way to use your WWN number is to connect to iSCSI storage devices. iSCSI is a storage protocol that allows you to connect your computer to storage devices over a standard Ethernet connection. In order to connect to an iSCSI storage device, you will need to provide your WWN number to the storage administrator.
You can also use your WWN number when configuring Fibre Channel zoning on a storage network. Zoning is a process of dividing up a Fibre Channel network into separate areas, or zones. Each zone contains a group of devices with similar characteristics. When configuring zoning, you will need to specify the WWN numbers for the devices that you want to include in each zone.
