DirectAttach Fibre Channel with 3PAR not working: "Connected To: 00:00:00:00:0..."

hello everyone, 

 

With our new enclosure, we are encountering issues when  implementing Direct-Attach with our 3PAR StoreServ.  We connected 2 ports from VC1 and 2ports from VC2 to the 3PAR controllers.

 

We defined 4 san fabrics as you can see in the screenshots attached. First, we've noticed that there was no WWN defined in the "Connected To" column: It shows " 

 

But still we created a server profile for a blade we used for test. And as we could expect, in the HP 3PAR Console Management, we can't see the WWN shown in the test server profile. 

 

We can't see where the problem could come from as there is no alerts raised by the enclose, no errors in the logs and the status is even green when displaying the san fabric properties. 

 

Any idea? 

 

Thanks a lot,

hello everyone, 

 

We figured out how to make it work. It was so simple! We fixed it by rebooting both of the virtual connect. 

 

Then, we could see the WWN when showing the SAN Fabrics definition: "Conneted To:" column. 

 

Hope it would be helpfull to someone else, 

 

thanks,
