Emulex controller not seen in acu

Hello There
I am installing 2 X BL480c servers in c7000 enclosure. I have inserted Brocade 4/12 FC SAN switch in row 2 bays 3 &4.I have inserted Emulex mezzanine card in slot 1 of both the servers. I connected the MSA 1000 storage to the Brocade san switch. I have not done any configuration ( like zonig,etc) on SAN switch.I deployed the win2k3 ent edition on both the servers using rdp scripts.I can see the emulex drivers installed in device manager.But when I run ACU I can see only internal sas controller but I cannot see any hba controller to configure storeage.In HP management console I see warning on external storage.. indicating loop fail.
Any suggestions pls

Further I tried installing Emulex driver ver 5-5.20a10 & 5-5.30a2 but no improvement.

Assuming that the problem could be to do with Brocade san switch configuration. I connect to one of the switch.
I see that all the ports from 1-16 are not enabled.when I try to enable them it says not licensed port.
Below are outputs of some DPOD commands.

swd77:admin> licenseport -show
24 ports are available in this switch
No POD licenses are installed
Dynamic POD method is in use
12 port assignments are provisioned for use in this switch:
12 port assignments are provisioned by the base switch license
* 6 port assignments are added if the first POD license is installed
* 6 more assignments are added if the second POD license is installed
3 ports are assigned to installed licenses:
3 ports are assigned to the base switch license
Ports assigned to the base switch license:
17, 18*, 19*
Ports assigned to the first POD license:
None
Ports assigned to the second POD license:
None
Ports not assigned to a license:
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15
16, 20, 21, 22, 23

9 license reservations are still available for use by unassigned ports
2 license assignments are held by offline ports (indicated by *)

swd77:admin> licenseshow
Sbc9cSyezRTcdAdP:
Web license
Zoning license
Fabric license
cQyyQycbQQdVzzRw:
N_Port ID Virtualization license

Do we need to have DPOD licenses to enable internal 16 ports of this Brocade switch? How do we do it?

Re: Emulex controller not seen in acu

Hello

You certainly do not need any additional licenses, you still have 9 licenses unassigned. DPOD (Dynamic Ports On Demand) automatically discovers 'online' ports and assigns an available license. Ports are activated on a first-come, first-served basis for any combination of locations, including external ports. Use the Brocade Switch web interface and check if any internal ports are online, while the servers are turned on and running an OS.
If no, than you probably inserted the mezzanine card into wrong slot. IIRC BL480c has 3 mezzanine slots and number 1's connector is closest to the the mainboard.

Hi Marek
Thanks for your response. I have already changed the mezzanine slot and it worked well..
