I can't see my EVA 4400 from CV

I can't see my EVA 4400 from CV.

I have a server running Windows 2003 SP2 x64 (SMA). The server has two Qlogic HBA (HPAE311A) with driver 9.1.8.25 (before 9.1.7.17). During the POST using Qlogic BIOS Tool I can seen the two HSV3000 Controllers (Firmware 09501200 ) from my EVA 4400. In the Mgmt the CV working fine.

I had reinstalled Windows 2003 SP2 twice and I had installed CV 9.0 and 9.2 and the messages es the same: No Storage systems are visible to this management server for any of the following reasons. Only for a test had presented a LUN to this server and working fine, I formated y copy data to this drives, then why my CV don work ?

- I don't have password-protected EVA.
- On switches I can see the two controlers from EVA and the HBA QLogic (I seen the driver version ).

My SAN Switch is a 8/12c (AJ820A) with Firmware v6.1.0_8e1. I have SLES11 Server all are working fine with their LUN. This is my zone for the SMA

Some idea about this situation ?

Thanks a lot

Known bug. You need to restart EVA controllers to get out of this.

Configure zoning so that there's only one EVA port on each zone.

Wait for next firmware release.

Re: I can't see my EVA 4400 from CV

I restarted one controller and all my LUN using by linux server change to read only.

The controllers are using he firmware 09501200, I have plannig to upgrate to 09522000. This upgrade resolve all my problems ?

This action in EVA working with HP-UX or Windows don't cause any issue.

In the syslog have:
