link status is showing down in VA 7110 on front port (FC)

Dear All,

We have a HP rp4440 server with a VA 7110 storage directly attached to it via HBA cards (Both controller are connected to seprate HBA cards directly with Fiber cable).

Few days back we faced a problem on VA, on diagnosis we found that a controller battery was at warning state. Thus we purchased the battery and replaced it according to the manual. We did this activity after shutting down the whole system (Server as well as storage).

Now after replacing the battery the contoller is showing link down.

Attached is the armdiag for the same.

Please help us with the troubleshooting step, as well as let us know what problems arises with battery replacement.

entire setup if running as of now but with one controller (no redundancy).

Hi Sanjay,
Execute the below commands and check whether the link is up from server side or not
#ioscan -fnC fc
#fcmsutil /dev/fcdX (X info will get from the above O/P).
#/opt/fcms/bin/fcmsutil /dev/fcdx get remote all (From this command confirm that VA is been read by the server,you should see VAport info in the command O/P).

Note:It may be fcd or td devices,you can get clarify from the ioscan O/P.

You may upload the O/P files.

Cheers,
Anil
