Re: CpqFcaHostCntlrStatus:loopFailed?

Hi James,

It would appear that you've lost one connection to the MSA.

As you've got a dual channel FC HBA, I'm guessing things are setup redundantly, so there are two controllers in the MSA1000 etc.

Check that both controllers are working, and also check that the fibre is connected correctly from the server to the MSA....

Hope this helps,

Okay, I had suspected that, but I was worried it might be something worse. Thanks!
