Fiber Controller

I have two fiber controller in a rp4400 server running HP-UX 11.11 and I can't see the disk in at enclosure. I have add the drivers needed and loaded the software for the fiber cards: "FibrChanl-00_B.11.11.19_HP-UX_B.11.11_32_64.depot" which said that it
supported the following:

"HP-UX 11i v1 FCD driver for fibre channel adapters (A6826A, A9782A, A9784A, AB378A, AB378B, AB379A, AB379B, AB465A, AD193A, AD194A) on HP PA Servers"


The card I have in the server are AB378BHP PCI-x Single-Port 4GB Fibre Channel HBA for HP-UX.


Here's the output from kysystem:
{mobcp(ASP1AP7):root}/tmp1_mnt->kmsystem | grep -e 'td' -e 'fc' -e 'Module'

So I am out of things to try, so what else can i do:

Re: Fiber Controller

So presumably if you run:

ioscan -funC fc

You see at least one FC HBA port listed with a device file...

run the fcmsutil command against that device file, e.g.:

fcmsutil /dev/fcd0

or whatever the device file name is...

post the results here.

Re: Fiber Controller

If you have the AB378B FC HBA, you need FibrChanl-01, not FibrChanl-00.

Re: Fiber Controller

I have the software for Fiber-01 so remove the for fiber-00 and added it. Here's the results from ioscan:

{mobcp(ASP1AP7):root}/-> ioscan -funC fc

So I can see the fiber card but not the disk in the array now. So we are making progress...

Re: Fiber Controller

Now, do

## ioscan -fnCdisk > /tmp/io1
## insf -e
## ioscan -fnCdisk > /tmp/io2
## diff /tmp/io1 /tmp/io2

should show new devices detected.

Re: Fiber Controller

I have bounce the server twice and still no devices was created. So not sure what's going on at the moment. Now that the fiber adapter is seeing by the server then what can be the cause for the problem now.

Re: Fiber Controller

What type of storage are you connecting to? How are you trying to connect to it? From the fcmsutil output, the topology of the HBAs is PRIVATE_LOOP at 1Gbps. This seems odd to me unless maybe it's a directly attached storage array of some sort.

Re: Fiber Controller

Did you create any LUNs?
Did you present them to the WWNs of your FC HBAs:

N_Port Port World Wide Name = 0x500143800234d5c8
&
N_Port Port World Wide Name = 0x5001438002523d7c

Re: Fiber Controller

The array is an DS2405(A6255A) and it is been de-commission for about 6 months and we need it added to a server for testing so I connected it. I have to check the connection and make sure all the hardware is correct. I use another one we had last month and connected it the same way and had no problem. Anyway I need to get the manual on the server and go from there because it should beseeing the disk drives in the array.

Re: Fiber Controller

I was just wonder if the card I have in the server which is a AB378B 4GB Single Port PCI/PCI-x Fibre Channel is not support by the OS or the DS2405 enclosure. I might need older model fiber cards. Any suggestions.

Ahhh
The DS2405 is just, well, just a bunch of disks ;>)

Compatibility, as you suggest could be the issue, or configuration.


These might help (as well as finding the correct doco)

Re: Fiber Controller

I went back to the console and seen that there were a few error messages on it about the DS2405 enclosure and suggest that I power cycle the DS2405 enclousre and I did the server as well. When the server came back online I can see all the disks. Thanks!
