3Par 7200 Loss sync

Our 3Par 7200 shows two ports as loss sync. As it is SAS type does it mean it lost connection to disks?

Re: 3Par 7200 Loss sync

If I look to the Picture to one of your other Posts, there is no Cable connected to Port DP-2.

No Cable -> No Link

You shoot up a lot of Posts.

It would be a good idea to attend a training or to read the manuals.

Re: 3Par 7200 Loss sync

Thanks for reply,

Labels is comments, so maybe it's not important.

Documentation:

Slot 0 = SAS ports 
Slot 1 = Onboard fiber channel ports 
Slot 2 = PCI HBA ports 
Slot 3 = RCIP port 

 If slot0 is 2x6 Gb SAS 4-Wide expansion ports, then both of them would be loss sync?

Re: 3Par 7200 Loss sync for SAS ports

What does showcage show?  Do you have anything connected to 0:0:2 and 1:0:2?

I.e. do you have at least two cages?

Your showport for those two ports indicates they are "free".

As I told, If you look at the Picture in the other Case, there is nothing connected.

He don't have any Cage connected.

Here are more info. 

The question that comes up is why it is loss sync instead of offline. And host type ports have partners, so how to do that FailoverState would change from none?

Re: 3Par 7200 Loss sync for SAS ports

There are FC, IP and SAS Ports.

Do not compare the State description of different Types of Ports.

The SAS Ports have no Partner.

Re: 3Par 7200 Loss sync for SAS ports

Would it make you more at ease if I show you an output from two different 3PARs I have in my lab. One is a 7200(3par1) with no extra cages, just the node cage0. The other is an 8400(3par2) with one extra cage so cages 0 and 1. Cage 1 connects to DP2.

> why it is loss sync instead of offline?

 

I'm not sure SAS ports can be "offline"?  In any case the port says "free".

Unfortunately SAS isn't mentioned at all under "clihelp -col showport".  :-(

(Next time paste text and not attach pictures.  I can't grep or cut text out of them.)

They just show the same thing.  If the SAS port isn't connected to a cage, then it is "free".

 

@Cali   SAS Ports have no Partner.

 

They kind of do. :-)  The corresponding port on the node pair.  Each cage has two IOMs.

@Dennis Handly. Sorry, I think there's been a misunderstanding. My response was for the originator of the post just to prove that, what they were seeing is correct and to put their minds at rest.

Yes, I finally figured that out.  :-)
