problem on FC60 RAID Controller (((plz help)))

Hi All,

 

kindly help me with the following issue:

we are having weird behavior on a FC60/SC10 storage system connected to a database and an application hp9000 rp3440 servers. You can see attached the output of "amdsp -a" command from one of the servers connected to the array.

Also kindly find below the output of "ioscan -fnC disk" on both servers:

 

on the 1st server:

the weird thing is that many of the disks on the 1st server were stated as "NO_HW". How can i proceed with the troubleshooting in order to find out the cause of the problem? could it be the Fiber Channel card on the 1st server that is damaged? an FC cable issue? knowing that cards are redundant?

 

Your help is much appreciated

Many thanks in advance
