How to determine a fibre adapter Qlogic WWN in a TRU64 5.1

Hi all,
i'm trying to determine the wwn of a Fibre adapter (to connect the server to a SAN) from Qlogic provider.

Can anyone explain me?

# hwmgr -get attr -id 73
73:
name = isp0
category = scsi_adapter
registration_time = Tue Apr 6 18:36:28 2004
user_name = (null) (settable)
location = (null) (settable)
software_module = (null)
state = available
state_previous = unknown
state_change_time = none
event_count = 0
last_event_time = none
access_state = online
access_state_change_time = none
capabilities = 0
indicted = 0
indicted_probability = (null)
indicted_urgency = (null)
disabled = 0
sim_vendor_id = Tru64 QLOGIC ISP
hba_vendor_id = 1040B/V2 05.57

Thanks in advance.

Saints!

Hi again,

when i try with the emxmgr command i receive:

# emxmgr
framework error: subsystem 'emx' not found
Unable to locate emx driver major number
Unable to configure for emx subsystem

Anything else?

Thanks!

Hello,

Are you the same person as, or do you work with, 'guna' for this topic just now:

http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=787800

If not, how strange! What are the odds of such similar question on the same day!
If yes, please stick to using one login name and just re-reply to your existing topic!

The emxmgr tool probably only works for emx = emulex fibre adapters, not Qlogin

The qlogic is not a fibre adapter is it? Just plain scsi no? Am i confused or are you looking at the wrong card/bus?

Could you not use:
hwmgr -show fibre -adapter
(Or a variation thereof?)

For futher help perhaps you should share some (relevant parts only) output from
hwmgr -view hier

Hein.

Hi Hein,

first one i'm not "guna" and i don't know who is him.

I've tried the solution-response to that topic that you refer it me.

The emxmgr show me the error that i've posted before.

Qlogic is a provider for fibre chanel too.
See that reference on sun systems:
http://sunsolve.sun.com/handbook_pub/Devices/Fibre_Channel/FIBRE_Single_2GB_FC_AL.html

About hwmgr -show fibre -adapter
in V5.1 1885 alpha, hwmgr -show only accepts:
"component"
"name"
"scsi"
subsystems to work properly:
# hwmgr -show fibre -adapter
hwmgr: Error unable to find subsystem name in command line.

See the attach with de "view hier".

Thanks again.

Saints!

>>> first one i'm not "guna" and i don't know who is him.
Right you are (of course). A conincidence!
Just after I replied I checked the profiles, on from India, on from Spain. Great!

>>> I've tried the solution-response to that topic that you refer it me.
Yeah, but that was for an Emulex.
This will not work for Qlogic as you found out.

And yes, Qlogic makes fibre adapters.
HP OEMs one called: A7523A 2Gb Fibre Channel HBAs

But best I know the Qlogic 1040 is FWD SCSI, not fibre.
We call it an KZPBA-CX adapter.

You might find some help in table:
http://h18002.www1.hp.com/alphaserver/options/asds20/asds20_15_options.html#OptListHead

I know this sounds silly, but do you really have a fibre controller in this system?
Maybe the boot record (uerf -R) or console output can clarify? P000>>> show config

Hein.
