Hi Robert,

Thanks for your information.
I found my PDC is N/A.
Is it meaning I need to update it?

Re: HP A6826-60001 2Gb Dual Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter's Driver

Hi Robert,

It is hp9000/r3440.

I found it should be firmware ( PDC 44.06)adapter firmware( FW 3.03.154) .

With cstm, I found PDC N/A.
I think it required update PDC and FW.

Because in MP MAIN MENU, I found it:
-------------
he M0/4/1/0: Fibre Channel Driver has received an unexpected error status code from Firmware in response to 0/4/1/0: Fibre Channel Driver has received an unexpected error status code from Firmware in response to 0/4/1/0: Fibre Channel Driver has received an unexpected error status code from Firmware in response to a Mailbox Command.
--------------
This error is printed on screen continuely.
It is really crazy!!

How can stop it?

Thanks
Dave

Re: HP A6826-60001 2Gb Dual Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter's Driver

Hi Dave,

current firmware for the server is

VERSION: PDC 46.34, BMC 03.52 and iLO MP firmware E.03.32

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=2512013&swItem=pf-58098-1&prodNameId=1828449&swEnvOID=54&swLang=13&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=0

(ISO Image)

There is also a patch to update the servers firmware.

The HBA firmware is only used if you boot via this HBA, otherwise the driver will overlay it at runtime. So check the driver and update if needed.

You should use another connection (telnet/ssh) meanwhile if you cannot use the console.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: HP A6826-60001 2Gb Dual Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter's Driver

Hi Dave,

It might be better to halt the system;
- remove the adapters
- boot the system
- install the firmware patch
- install the driver software
- shutdown -h
- install the adapters
- boot the system

That is, if you can afford downtime. And while you are updating, also check the latest patch bundles and the latest online diagnostics.

Re: HP A6826-60001 2Gb Dual Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter's Driver

There is a patch, but it depends on others and they may depend again ... so it would be better to install the latest complete bundle (see abaove) or here:

http://www13.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/releasePage.do?BC=main|releaseIndexPage|&releaseId=0812-11.11

Hope this helps!

Re: HP A6826-60001 2Gb Dual Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter's Driver

Hi all,

I have update with latest package.
I tried 3 driver:
FibrChanl-01_B.11.11.12/13/16_HP-UX_B.11.11_64.depot

It always remind me to install fileset:
FC-TACHYON-TL.FC-TL-KRN,r>=B.11.11.10
FC-TACHYON-TL.FC-TL-RUN,r>=B.11.11.10
.

which package included it?
For example, PHSS_31326, it contains:
FC-TACHYON-TL B.11.11.01 B.11.11.02 B.11.11.03 B.11.11.04
FC-TACHYON-TL B.11.11.05 B.11.11.06 B.11.11.09 B.11.11.12

but no B.11.11.10,where I can get it?

Thanks

Re: HP A6826-60001 2Gb Dual Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter's Driver

If you do

# ioscan -fnCfc

is there a device file like /dev/fcd0 ?

You should try to re-create this with insf.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
