xp256 qla2200f linux

I am unable to see any disks, I am only able to see the processor under dmesg, any idea why I can not see the disks allocated to this port?

Host mode is set to 0x0C which is shown in a few pdf's... is this the correct setting for linux?

dmesg: qla2x00_set_info starts at address = f88c9060

Re: xp256 qla2200f linux

Check topology setting. Currently card is configured in LOOP mode.
If you have XP connected directly or through a hub then XP should be configured in loop also, if there're switches then I guess XP is configured in fabric and your QLA card should be configured in fabric also.
Please used QLA bios or config utilities to change this value.
Hope it will help

Re: xp256 qla2200f linux

Here is the tail dump of /proc/scsi/qla2200/2

SCSI Device Information:

SCSI LUN Information:
( 0: 0): Total reqs 1, Pending reqs 0, flags 0x0*, 0:0:00,
( 0:112): Total reqs 0, Pending reqs 0, flags 0x0*, 0:0:00,
( 0:113): Total reqs 0, Pending reqs 0, flags 0x0*, 0:0:00,

This shows to drives 0:112 and 0:113...
WHere are these mapped to under /dev/?????

Re: xp256 qla2200f linux


A couple of configuration issues that need to be reviewed:

- Loop vs. Fabric: all components must be the same (host, switch, array).

- Host Mode: are you sure that you want the host mode set to 0C? I think that you might want to try 00.

- SecureManager: you didn't mention it, but do you have SecureManager implemented? If so, are the proper WWN's defined and associated with the LUNs that you are expecting to see on your Linux host?

Also, what does ioscan look like?
