MSA HP-UX 11i K-460

All,

I have the MSA1000 Storage (with 1 controller) plugged into a A3404A 1gig fiber channel card in a K-460(RISC)HP-UX 11.11, the systems reboot when i plug the fiber channer cable.
If i get out the cable, the system run ok.
I upgrade the firmware to 4.38, but the problem continue.

Does anyone have any ideas on the problem I am having?

Fernando.

Hi

When Fiber cable is removed and system boot is OK, does the Fiber Card A3404A show CLAIMED in ioscan and driver for this card is installed?

The K-class doesn't seem to be listed here.

Do you know how to use fcmsutil?

Re: MSA HP-UX 11i K-460

You might have more luck with the newer A6685A. Are you direct connected to the MSA1000 or is there a switch in between?

Re: MSA HP-UX 11i K-460

The A3404A adapter allows connection of FL-DA (FIBRE LOOP DIRECT ATTACH) devices. The MSA1000 supports Fabric, Private Loop & Public Loop Support. This doesn't seem like a match. The A6685A supported arbitrated private loop configuration and Fabric starting with driver B.11.00.06 or later. This sounds like more of a match, but still it might not be supported.

All,

Thank you.

I installed MSA 1000 with a L-2000 server with a Emulex L9002L fiber channel;
and it's ok.

The K-460 with this configuration don't work.

Yes, that says you need the A6685A to be supported with the K460.
