Re: Auto Port Configuration

Hi

When i do Lanscan it shows Lan900 down and also i am not able to assign any IP address to it.I am not able to add any network physical ports to it. It gives error stating that Link Aggregate currently configured as FEC_AUTO.I have intalled patch PHNE_28778. Any more patches need to it.

Thanks

Re: Auto Port Configuration

Why don't you use SAM to configure APA.. it works perfectly for us... also you need to have your switch infrastructure configured so APA will happily work with it at whatever mode you wish to run it...

Re: Auto Port Configuration

Our installs are based on the JUN2003 HP-UX11i EOE release and APA works fine sans the patches... I don't rememember ever applying an APA specific patch to my servers...

Re: Auto Port Configuration

PHNE_28778 is the only patch listed for APA... not even a dependency... it is critical and calls for a reboot.

Re: Auto Port Configuration

Quite a few SAM fixes... I am not sure if any apply to your issue.

11. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, when the user changes a port's
mode to LACP/FEC_AUTO from MANUAL, if there is IP or
any other protocol logged on to the port, no error
message is displayed and the
/etc/rc.config.d/hp_apaportconf file is updated.
12. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, no error message is displayed if
a link aggregate is configured with a valid IP address
but an invalid subnet mask.
13. In the terminal version of SAM, on entering the
SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, the attributes of a port in
the "modify" screen are displayed in an incorrect
order.
14. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, when a user configures a link
aggregate, SAM displays a syntax error message.
15. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, whenever a port is removed from
or added to a link aggregate, the following error
message is displayed:
ERROR MESSAGE:
ERROR: lan902 interface | -X -g 902 0 902 :
Error: LinkAggregate 902 is already enabled (LINK_UP)
16. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, SAM modifies the
/etc/rc.config.d/hp_apaconf file despite the failure of
the "Configure Link aggregate" task.
17. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, redundant error messages are
displayed when the "Modify Network Physical Port
Attributes.." action fails.
18. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, no warning or error message is
displayed when a user selects a port with different
Group capability in the "Add or Delete Network
Physical Port" screen.
19. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, SAM disables "Modify Network
Physical Port Attributes.." action item when a user
selects a port in the LACP_AUTO link aggregate.
20. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, no warning or error message is
displayed when a user assigns invalid Port Priority
for a port in the "modify" screen.
21. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, no warning or error message is
displayed when a user assigns invalid Group Capability
for a port in the "modify port" screen or a link
aggregate in the "configure link aggregate" screen.
22. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, no warning or error message
is displayed when a user assigns an invalid IP address
to a link aggregate in the "configure link aggregate"
screen.
23. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, no warning or error message is
displayed when a user assigns an incorrect key for a
port in the "modify port" screen.
24. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, SAM disables the "add" (<) btn,
which is used to add the eligible ports with non-zero
group capability into a link aggregate with zero group
capability and status DOWN.
25. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, when a user assigns the same IP
address to a link aggregate which has been assigned
to another interface, the above action fails but
/etc/rc.config.d/netconf is modified.Also, SAM calls
the "ifconfig" command evenif a user does not modify
the IP address or subnet mask.
26. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, no warning or error message is
displayed when a user selects LACP_AUTO mode port for
addition to the FEC_AUTO link aggregate in the
"Add or Delete Network Physical Port" screen.
27. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, when a user adds a port to a
link aggregate or deletes a port from a link aggregate
through the "Add or Delete Network Physical Port"
screen, the port priority field is not displayed on the
screen.
28. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, when a user deletes a port from
or adds a port to a MANUAL link aggregate, the group
capability value for the link aggregate is deleted from
/etc/rc.config.d/hp_apaconf file.Also, if a user adds a
port with non zero group capability value into a link
aggreagte with zero group capability and in DOWN state,
the group capability value for the link aggregate in
/etc/rc.config.d/hp_apaconf file is incorrect.
29. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, when a user deletes a port from
the FEC_AUTO/LACP_AUTO link aggregate, the
/etc/rc.config.d/hp_apaconf file is modified.
30. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, SAM does not disable the add
button (<) when a MANUAL port is selected for addition
to a LACP_AUTO link aggregate.
31. In SAM -> Networking and Communications -> Autoport
Aggregation sub-area, the "Advance Option" button is
not disabled for MANUAL link aggregate after ports
are added to link aggregate through the "Add or Delete
Network Physical Port" screen.
