At least one fibre channel hba port is not connected to a vc-fc switch.  The mezzanine card maybe installed in the wrong location.  Are you sure you to continue.  I click yes and continue

Re: hba error when adding profile in virtual connect

Hello, Could you please config in which bays the VC-FC modules reside in?


Verify that MEZZ slot that teh HBA has been installed in in the existing servers.


It might appear that the VC-FC modules are have been installed in Bays 3 and 4, in which case the HBA should be mezz slot 1.


Verify the new servers are configured the same way was the existing servers.
