P2000 HOST_CHAN_PORT_DOWN Error Message

P2000 HOST_CHAN_PORT_DOWN Error Message

I have 3 P2000 SAN's, fiber channel, connected to 2 HP SANSwitch 8/8 (brocade 300) switches, that connect to 6 GL370 (ESXi) hosts with QLogic Fiber Channel adapters.  Every few days one or two of the SAN's log the following error message:

 

Subject: P2000 G3 FC Warning: HOST_CHAN_LINK_DOWN

  

Event:

 

Host link down. (port: 2)

 

EVENT ID:#A1071

 

EVENT CODE:112

 

EVENT SEVERITY:Warning

 

EVENT TIME:2011-07-31 10:47:14

 

 System Name:MSA P2000A

 

System Location:CEC - RIE12

 

System Contact:

 

IP Address:

 

I check the log files and they the port went down, then immediately came back up.  I sent the log files to HP's support desk and they said the SAN looks fine so it must be out side of it.  I assume one of the Brocade switches or one of the six hosts.  Is that assumption correct and does anyone have any troubleshooting suggestions?  Thank you.

Re: P2000 HOST_CHAN_PORT_DOWN Error Message

This events are normal, during a reset of port / reboot of server / san switch. If you are aware of any of these happening , there should be no cause of worry.
