Re: Superdome

Do you have multiple pathes to the EVA LUN?
Did you change the FC HBA only?
Do you use another switch port now?

Hope this helps!

Re: Superdome

Did you adjust your zoning (on switch) and presentation (on EVA) to match the new HBA WWN?

Hope this helps!

Re: Superdome

Re: Superdome

If you only replaced the HBA the path will remain the same.

BUT, if the switch and the EVA are not configured to accept the new WWN, you *cannot* connect to the LUN - hence no boot!

Hope this helps!

Re: Superdome

And again:

Do you have multiple pathes to the EVA LUN?


I'm sure you have an alternate path (configured).

Try to boot the alternate path.

Hope this helps!

Re: Superdome

Why should the path change?

The path depends on the internal path to the slot, the HBA, the switch and the LUN - so the path remains, if you replace the HBA only.


But a new HBA has a new WWN, you need to adjust the switch and the array to allow this new WWN to login.

Hope this helps!
