BL460c Gen9 + HP FlexFabric 20Gb 2P 630FLB FIO Adptr + EMC VNX5700

 

BL460c Gen9 + HP FlexFabric 20Gb 2P 630FLB FIO Adptr + EMC VNX5700

Have any of you faced issues with EMC storage? One of our customers is facing issues with BL460c Gen9. Neither the server nor HP FlexFabric 20Gb 2P 630FLB FIO Adptr is not in EMC's compatibility matrix. ESXi is reporting intermittent path degradeds messages and VMware reported hardware is the suspect.

 

Around 23 servers have the same issue. OneView 1.20.03 and FlexFabric 20/40 are deployed in this setup.

Hi, we are facing same issue, same EMC storage with blades Gen9 with same 630FLB adapter, the version of ESXi is 5.1 U3, as customer needs to integrate the new servers in existing environment.

 

For now we have put all the latest versions available on the server.

ESXi 5.1 U3 HP image from March

HBA Drives 2.710.70.v50.7

HBA FW 7.10.72

 

The degraded has disappeared but we still get the following errors in /var/log/vmkernel.log:

45 ScsiDeviceIO: CmdSN from world 21103 to dev "naa.6006016013302600b209a6ade7c2e411" failed H:0x7 D:0x0 P:0x0 Possible sense data: 0x0 0x0 0x0

 

 

As far as I could test, with ESXi 5.5 U2 it is working fine but customer will not accept this version.

 

Please let me know if you have done any further testing and have any results

Hi,

 

I confirm that Vsphere 5.5 is working fine the 630FLB + 460Gen9 + EMC storage.

Hi,

 

I would suggest to open a formal support case with HP and provide the required logs (OneView dumps, AHS, VM-support,..) to fully review the systems side of the enviroment. There may be a patch/hotfix missing.
