Forgetful QLogic HBA

Hey guys,

Recently starting using a few BL460C blades with QLogic QMH2462 HBA installed.

The c7000 enclosure is using HP Virtual Connect for SAN connectivity.

The HBA's were configured to boot from SAN off a LUN on a HP EVA8000, but I've since changed it to boot from a LUN off an IBM SVC. The settings change fine in the QLogic Fast!Util setup and the machine boot from SAN as expected.

But when I reboot the blade the HBA reverts back to it's old configuration, e.g. back to the LUN config for the EVA.

QLogic QMH2462 Firmware 4.04.04, BIOS 2.08.

Any and all ideas/help would be great

Re: Forgetful QLogic HBA

I have these blades and have not had an issue with changing boot LUNs, though the storage is always an EVA.

I am using Firmware 5.01.02 Bios 2.08 .

Perhaps its worth clearing the NVRAM on the blade and reconfiguring it?

Is there still zoning for these blades and the EVA storage? What if this is removed?

My mistake.
Turn out the boot LUN was configured from the Virtual Connect manager.
I just had to change them there instead of the HBA BIOS.
