HP Brocade AP769A does not support direct connectivitiy to HP P2000 G3 FC SAN

Dear 

 

We have sold to our customer HP P2000pG3 Pn: AP846A along with HBA p/n: AP769A but when my engineer went for installation its not detecting the storage directly.

 

Please advise what will be the issue does Brocade does not support & we have to get Qlogic in this case.

 

Waiting for reply.


Regards 


Faisal

The default setting for the msa is direct attach (loop), but you need to set the type to fabric (point to point). If the switch has zoning enabled, you probably need to create a new zone.

Check "switchshow" if it got a link.

Hope this helps!

I see it is a brocade hba, sorry.

But it is listed as supported:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13551_div/13551_div.html

(near the bottom)

So is the setting still "loop"?

Do you get a link?

Hope this helps!

Hi,

 

Check the host parameters setting on MSA, is it loop or point-to-point or auto.

 

Try changing it to point-to-point using command "set host-parameters". Then verify with command "show host-parameters"

 

 

Thanks,

BK

You need to have driver 3.1.0.0 to support FCAL and direct attach to storage with the Brocade FC HBA.

 

See Brocade Adapters v3.1.x.x Release Notes Update 1 for details.

 

Unfortunately it looks like v3.1.0.0 have not yet been published on HP's site but it is available on Brocade's.
