After hard shutdown, now link to switch failed ?

People,

Due to sudden power outage and not enough UPS power, my EVA 6300 is turned off abruptly today.

But then it comes back online again after the power resume in my Data Center, but then I got this error:

Controller 1Controller 1Controller 2Controller 2

 

This is happening in both Controllers as above. There is no cables removed from the EVA array to the server HBA.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

Best regards,

>> There is no cables removed from the EVA array to the server HBA

 

Is it a direct connection between EVA and server?

Is the server already up and running?


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Click on "More details" and check if Direct or Loop mode is set.

@Torsten. yes, you are right. the server reboot was taking too long, hence it is not clearing it by itself within 1 hour.

After 1 hour of server reboot, everything is back to normal :-)

Loop = Server is connected direct to the Array

Direct = Storage is connected to an FC-Switch
