VC FC 24 port modules reports not connected

All,
Have a c7000 with two VC-FC 8GB 24 port modules connected to cisco MDS9124 SAN switch and EVA 4400. Everything is working fine with the storage connection to the server. However, when I check Virtual Connect Manager and view the VC Modules under Server Port Information it shows the server is logged in but the WWN is 00:00:00:00:00:00:00:00 and under the CONNECTED TO column it shows blank. Firmware is current at 1.02 v6.1.0_48. With the previous 4GB C-FC modules everything displayed fine.

Re: VC FC 24 port modules reports not connected

Hi,

For supporting VC FC 8b modules the minimum firmware version of Virutal Connect manager to be 2.10

The HP Virtual Connect 8Gb 24-Port Fibre Channel Module requires a Virtual Connect Ethernet Module installed in the system for management and administration. The HP Virtual Connect 8Gb 24-Port Fibre Channel Module requires Virtual Connect Manager Firmware version 2.10 or higher.

Please ensure that remaining component firmwares like OA and SAN Switches are also at latest level.
