MSA2000 SAN storage could not connect with HP 8/8 SAN switch

when we connect MSA200 with new hp 8/8 san switch the port turn to green but the status of the port is L port the new switch FOS is v7.0.2c 

but the msa2000 work with the old san switch it is also hp 8/8 san switch but with FOS v6.2.0d

did we have to downgrade the new switch to recognize the MSA2000?

An 'L' port is a loop port, meaning the ports on the MSA are configured as loop ports rather than point to point. This won't prevent the topolgoy from working but I assume you're using a Switched Fabric (FC-SW) toplogy rather than FC-AL (ring), in which case you should change the MSA ports to point to point.

 

Are you sure the zoning on the switch is set up correctly? If the switch is not new, did you reset it to factory defaults?
