You fibre link is going up and down. Check fibre cabels and GBICs.

Re: Fibre Card

Hi, we have the same problem with one of our Fibre channel cards.
We have checked (replaced) the cables but the issue remains. what does the status=6 loopFailed acctually mean?

What if there where no more problems to solve?

Re: Fibre Card

Hi, our problem is solved.

It seems that it is very important to use the hp support cd-rom that came with the cards or solution rather than installing the drivers only, because the cd also gives you configuration options for the fiber cards (in wich mode they should operate a.s.). So it seems that the hardware was not defective and neither where the cables...
