516 FIBRE SUBSYSTEM
LINK FAILURE
Error The controller is not currently
linked to anything. This
could be due to the
following:
â ¢ The Fibre Channel cable
is not connected.
â ¢ The device to which it
is connected is currently
not working.
â ¢ The MSA is connected
to a device that with an
incompatible port type.
Check the connections
on both ends of the Fibre
Channel cables and make
sure that the switch, hub, or
other system that the fibre is
connected to is operating
properly and is properly
configured.
Should the issue persist,
contact HP support.

Maybe the Fibre Link is up on the primary Controller but not the redundant controller you installed. The 2nd MSA controller needs a MSA SanSwitch 8 installed behind it or a Fibre I/O Module installed with a patch cable going to a external SanSwitch.
