Brocade FOS Dynamic Portnames

 As i´m playing around with new Brocade SAN Switches i wanted to clean up a little bit and one thing that i found very useful are dynamic portnames.

This feature will change the portname of the switchport according to the connected device.

To enable it run `configure` and enable Dynamic Portnames, this can be done online:

You then can change the behaviour on how the ports will be named by changing the "formatstring" or live with the default <switch name>.<port type>.<port index>.<alias name>

With FOS 8 you can change this now and select the following parameter e.g. 

portname -d "S.T.I.F.A.R"

you will get the explanation by running "portname -d -help"
