Continuous Access problem with EVA4000 and P6300: no Paths available

Hi,

 

i try to configure a CA between an EVA4000 and a P6300, but no paths are available in the Remote System Connection Status.

 

I have already done some CA configurations between similar EVAs without problems, but the main difference today is a zoning between ports 1 of the EVA4000 with ports 3 of the P6300 on the first Fabric, and a zoning between ports 2 of the EVA4000 with ports 4 of the P6300 on the second Fabric.

 

The reason is the iSCSI/FC P6300 model with only ports 3 and 4 on its controller.

 

The zones are :

 

 zone:  Repli_Fabric1
                EVA_CTRLA_PORT1; EVA_CTRLB_PORT1; P63_CTRLA_PORT3;
                P63_CTRLB_PORT3

 zone:  Repli_Fabric2


                EVA_CTRLA_PORT2; EVA_CTRLB_PORT2; P63_CTRLA_PORT4;
                P63_CTRLB_PORT4

 

So, EVA4000 firmware is 6.220 and P6300 firmware is 10.001, i check on the HP P6000 Enterprise Virtual Array Compatibility Reference, and it is OK between these two arrays with these arrays.

 

Any idea?

Make sure to the CA protocol is changed on the P6000. The EVA4000 does not understand the new HP SCSI FC Compliant replication protocol.

Yeup, you want them to be the same.
And all ports are online / logged in?

Yes, all ports on both EVA4000 and P6300 are on-line, and some LUNs are running on each.

 

So, both arrays are connected on same new switchs 8Gbs with 7.0.0c firmware on each Fabric (no ISL), and are configured by defaut.

 

I try to change for HP-FC protocol as soon as possible

Right,

 

the HP-FC Protocol is changed on the P6300 and the switchs FC, and all the paths are OK.
